    VMWare vCenter monitoring


      I am configuring our VMWare environment to be monitored by Orion. I got the ESX hosts added to Orion by creating a local user on each host with read-only permissions. I am confused as to what type of user is needed for the vCenter server. Can somebody please help me? So, under the "VMWare Polling Settings" in "Add a Node", what vCenter credentials do I provide? Is this a local vCenter user or is this a domain user? What specific privileges does this user need to the vCenter server? It is certainly not the same credentials as the ESX host.
