I am trying to get backups running again in an ESXi 6.0 system. They were running prior to my tenure, but stopped. I am using a fresh install of vCenter on Windows Server 2012 I'm stuck on what seems to be a privileges problem even though the backup user has full Administrator privileges (temporarily). I've been told that the privileges work differently when accessing the datastore, but I don't know why. Where can I go to learn the details of datastore access privileges?
