What are the minimum permissions for creating snapshots through Vmware? "Administrator" rights are off the table.

Our snapshots were failing and during the investigation, found that our user doesn't have the correct permissions in Vmware.

 

Message: Failed to create vCenter snapshot associated with volume collection XXXX1 schedule Nimble-Exchange-4am because the system is unable to log into the vCenter server due to an incorrect user name VMstorage or password. Verify the user name and password are correct.

 

Our Vmware admins will not allow Nimble to use an Administrator account due to concerns with security and general hesitation to allow anything/one admin access. What are the specific permissions required?

Thanks!
