There is artticle but its very old. https://access.redhat.com/sites/default/files/attachments/usinganonrootaccount_3x_4x_0.pdf

ESXi 5.5 does not have a "state" namespace in the role privilege hierarchy.

Assigning to Shikha for review.

Shikha - what we need to do here is add a section in 'Managing Providers' on how to set up non-root credentials to allow access for vSphere providers.

The case includes several notes, and the following article is the most up to date reference on the subject - https://access.redhat.com/articles/320543

I also imagine that we will need to reach out to engineering and the support personnel for the case above to ensure we are on the right track.
