  • ONTAP Tools 9.12+(OTV)
  • VMware vSphere 8.0.1

Answer

When OTV is installed, new privileges and roles are added to vCenter, alternatively you can configure custom roles and only add the OTV permissions/privileges that you need.

The following are the permissions that come with the OTV appliance for the VSC administrator,Provision and Read-only roles.(Please note these permissions may change with later versions of OTV and vcenter, They can also be viewed by clicking a VSC role then privileges under Access Control/Roles. )
