Fix Recommendation

For Oracle DB normal runtime operation, set the following permissions.
grant connect to vumAdmin
grant resource to vumAdmin
grant create any job to vumAdmin
grant create view to vumAdmin
grant create any sequence to vumAdmin
grant create any table to vumAdmin
grant lock any table to vumAdmin
grant create procedure to vumAdmin
grant create type to vumAdmin
grant execute on dbms_lock to vumAdmin
grant unlimited tablespace to vumAdmin
# To ensure space limitation is not an issue

For SQL DB normal operation, make sure that the database user has either a sysadmin server role or the db_owner fixed database role on the Update Manager database and the MSDB database.

The db_owner role on the MSDB database is required for installation and upgrade only.

Note: While current, it is always best to check both the latest VMware Update Manager Administration Guide and the vendor database documentation for any updates to these configurations.
