VMware authentication issues

I've been trying to run a scan against our esxi hosts but i keep getting this error.


VMware authentication was NOT successful on, user=XXX\svc-qualysguard, error message: Permission to
perform this operation was denied


The account im using is a domain account with full admin rights to the hosts. There are no firewalls in front of the hosts either.We have been able to run a succesful scan against another cluster in our vmware estate.


I'm struggling to troublshoot the issue as i cant see where the problem lies. It seems to be a permission thing yet the account has full permissions.


Can anyone give me some advice on what i should be looking at in order to make this work?
