Here is the answer from the DRA product team:

Disaster Recovery Advisor mainly uses non-privileged queries and commands that do not require any administrative rights. There are a small number of read-only queries and commands that do require root privileges on UNIX. For these, Symantec recommends using privilege control software, such as sudo, PowerBroker, super, and others.
