Resource pools are basically not the way to maintain hierarchies like you say (unless you want/need to limit resources). What you may do instead, is to create folders in the "VMs and Templates" view, on which you then can set the required permissions.
To add to André's response,
You can't create resource pools without vSphere DRS. The first version that I believe a DRS licence is available is vSphere Enterprise Plus. So if you require a simple hierarchy, André's suggestion is the way to go.
Hi André, Hi Simon,
perfect! with the folders we can build up the logical hierarchy as needed and set the required permissions to the users and groups.
Have a nice day.
