A vSphere Replication user needs to connect a source site to a target site.
What privilege is needed at both sites?
VRM remote.Manage VRM
VRM datastore mapper.Manage
Host.vSphere Replication.Manage replication
Virtual machine.vSphere Replication.Manage replication
When connecting sites, users at both sites must have VRM remote.Manage VRM privilege. When you connect sites that are part of the same SSO, you need to select the target site only without providing authentication details, as you are already logged in. After connecting the sites, you can monitor the connectivity state between them at Target Sites tab.
