Copy Roles and Permissions from Standalone ESX

Jump to solution

Have created several custom roles and permissions on 2 standalone ESX 3.02 boxes. Currently planning an upgrade to v3.5.

What file(s) do I need to back-up to migrate these customizations? Hoping I will not need to start from scratch and redefine everything again in my fresh v3.5 installs. In other words, what files are the roles and permissions defined in?

Thank you, Captainsniz...

Hello,

If you upgrade to 3.5 and not reinstall you should not need to restore anything, but the file is /etc/vmware/hostd/authorizations.xml.
