Thanks for the reply. I seen that articles and did the lazy thing by adding my personal ID to the root group and setting all the rights to vmnet* accordingly. Where my problem was is I didn't log out and log back in after I made the group modification for my personal ID.
I have a follow up question about an observation if you don't mind. I took a reboot on my z600 after re-reading that articles. I was still having my previous issue but this time I noticed my vmnet* device were back to just root:root 600 ownership. Do you know what script creates these device on boot?

Not exactly, but I can tell you how to fix the problem.
# mknod c 119 0 /lib/udev/devices/vmnet0
# mknod c 119 1 /lib/udev/devices/vmnet1
# mknod c 119 8 /lib/udev/devices/vmnet8
# chown root:root /lib/udev/devices/vmnet?
# chmod 660 /lib/udev/devices/vmnet?
The devices will be copied from /lib/udev/devices to /dev on boot, with the permissions preserved.
Perfect. Thanks a lot for your help.
