To use the Web console for vCloud Air to manage the virtual machines you replicated to the cloud, you must have a user account in vCloud Air and be a member of an administrative role in vCloud Air.

A user in vCloud Air can either be an administrator or an end user. vCloud Air groups administrator privileges in to specific administrator roles. An account administrator can assign a user to one or more of the administrator roles.

Before assigning a user to an administrative role to access the Disaster Recovery service, you must meet the following prerequisites:

You have subscribed to the Disaster Recovery service and received the email explaining how to log into vCloud Air for the first time.

You are assigned to the Account Administrator role in vCloud Air so that you can assign users to roles.

You have created the user account to which you want to add Disaster Recovery permissions.

See Add Users in the vCloud Air User's Guide for information.
