Permissions you need for Data Protector to be able to back up VMware

It's on pages 43-44 of the IntegrationVirtualization manual, but it's over a page break and I can never find it when I need it. These permissions need to be at the top level. Doing it at a lower level (e.g. at the datacentre level) doesn't seem to work.
