I installed a new vCenter Server, when i log in, on some pages i have the message:" You do not have permissions to view this object or this object does not exist".
Im Administrator on the vCenter (firstname.lastname@example.org) and i put another user in the admin group - same message
When i login with the same user on the vsphere desktop client, i can do all the operations.
Can anybody help?
I had the same issue, what my issue was is that I logged in just using administrator and what I thought was the password I setup, which got me in, but displayed the information you guys both saw.
When you login, you have to use email@example.com and the password you setup. At least that is what worked for me.
I exactly ended up in the same situation like yours when I deployed. All I did is logged in as firstname.lastname@example.org (The SSO administrator user) and provided my other user(say 'vcadmin') an administrator role (Administration->Global Permissions->Manage) Now I re-logged in with vcadmin and I could access the tab.
I have still the same problem - it doesn't matter if i'm logged in as email@example.com or with my active directory account - which is in the administrator group
I made a installation with vsphere 5.5 and everything worked fine - with my AD account - then i made a upgrade to vsphere 6 - same problem again
I use Windows 2012 R2 - with Vsphere 5.5 there is no issue, The Database is a SQL 2012 installation on a other server. i try now to install a plain windows 2012 server (without any additional software) and a local DB, perhaps there is a problem with a other software.
I'd recommend 2008 R2 myself if 2012 or 2012 R2 doesn't work.
A lot of 3rd party software is still buggy post-2008 R2. Take Spiceworks for instance, I installed it to 2012 R2 and ran discovery, it picked up about 1/3 of the environment. I installed to 2008 R2, same machine, same network, it discovered 100% of the environment.
Few other things I have seen that has had similar issues too. Hence, don't trust 2012 and 2012 R2 with 3rd party software... yet.
OK, i installed vcenter 6 on a plain Windows 2012 R2 with a local database - everything works fine. i think there is a problem with a 3rd party software on my real vcenter server - i try to deinstall all other software on the server before i install vcenter 6
Finally got workaround from Vmware, in my case adding all vsphere and Kerberos paths for Local system account solved web client permission issue see detailed instructions below.
Hope it helps
Please try the following. (before that please create a backup from the vCenter server)
In regedit system wide path is defined here:
Local system account overridden Path is defined under:
(first step, second location can be verified if exists; and if exists values can be compared to see differences)
You can either remove(rename) the existing override
(Computer->HKEY_USERS->S-1-5-18\Environment->Path) completely. This will make the system wide Path to take effect.
Or if this override was specified on purpose (for some reason), then modify
Computer->HKEY_USERS->S-1-5-18\Environment->Path to make sure to include MIT Kerberos installation (such as c:\Program Files\MIT\Kerberos\bin), and possibly other vSphere paths (like OpenSSL) for completeness.
Hopefully you've fixed your issue by now, but for everyone else that came here through Google, see the following KB:
I have Multiple vCenters using a separate Platform Services Controller, authenticating an AD Forrest with Multiple domains.
Only Users in the same domain as the PSC and vCenters could See the VSC icon, other Admins using AD accounts in the other domains could not see VSC.
To Fix Problem
Log in to vCenter as firstname.lastname@example.org
Administration -> Access Control -> Global Permissions -> Manage Tab
Add New Group
Permission: VSC Administrator (as Created by VSC Installation)
