In this example, you create a vSphere Replication user who cannot modify the replication infrastructure. The user cannot register additional vSphere Replication servers.


  • Verify that you have a replication site.
  • Verify that you have another user account.


  1. Log in as the Administrator user and clone the VRM Administrator role.
  2. In the cloned role, remove the Manage VR privileges.
  3. Select vCenter > Manage > Permissions and assign the cloned user with Propagate privilege.
  4. Log in as the cloned user and select Manage > vSphere Replication > Replication Servers.


Trying to register a vSphere Replication server results in the error message Permission to perform this operation was denied.
