Veeam ONE Reporter cannot get access to the root node on the vCenter server side to collect the topology.


Make sure that all the required permissions were provided for the root object on the vCenter server side (not only for child entities).

NOTE: If it does not help try to add a new vCenter account with proper permissions or use vshpere.local\administrator account.
