Disassociate (not just disconnect) the host from the vCenter.
1. Using the VI Client, log into the host.
2. On the host's summary tab, in the Host Management section, select "Disassociate host from vCenter Server..."
Association is a new relationship introduced in vSphere 5, whereby some host resources are managed only by an associated vCenter, and not the host itself. The Host, therefore, does not have permission to perform the operations required. If the vCenter is not in the vRanger's inventory, vRanger cannot obtain the required permissions.
