VMware authentication issues

Hi,

 

I've been trying to run a scan against our esxi hosts but i keep getting this error.

 

VMware authentication was NOT successful on
host=10.xxx.xx.xxx, user=XXX\svc-qualysguard, error message: Permission to
perform this operation was denied

 

The account im using is a domain account with full admin rights to the hosts. There are no firewalls in front of the hosts either.We have been able to run a succesful scan against another cluster in our vmware estate.

 

I'm struggling to troublshoot the issue as i cant see where the problem lies. It seems to be a permission thing yet the account has full permissions.

 

Can anyone give me some advice on what i should be looking at in order to make this work?

 

Thanks

 

Jim
