Can I hide the Permissions tab to other non-root users in VMware Esxi 5?

Hi all,

Due to some security reasons, I'd like to hiding some tabs (such as Permissions tab)when non-root users login via VMware client. I do not know if this can be achieved. Please advise. Thanks.

yes its possible. can do it via going to roles> adding a new role and select what you need to publish to the users.

Hi Anjani,

Thanks a lot for your reply. But your solution is not available. I have unselected the 'permission' to a user role, but users can also see the 'permissions' system tab.

check it out. There must be some permission are overriding the new role you are creating. Verify your permission and check out if its not getting the permission from some other group  .

We configured 100 of users with different permission and its works fine as we wants.

Okay. now i got it.

you created a role called > test

and same way you created a user called > test

But problem is still they both are not communicating.

Do this way. go to the host or the vcenter view and click on the permission tab there. > right click on that page and click on add permission . and add the permission level and user to each other so they can talk .

sharing the screenshot the way you can do.
