Accidently change "VSPHERE.LOCAL\Administrators" to "None" for a Resource Pool

Hi,

When tweaking the security of a newly defined Resource Pool of vCenter Server 6, we have accidently change the "VSPHERE.LOCAL\Administrators" from "Administrator" to "None".

In this way, we are not able to view / edit that Resources Pool and VMs in that pool.

Is there any way we can recover from this error ?

We have attempted to connect to the ESXi Host as "root" but could not move any VM from that Resource Pool - It is managed by the vCenter Server.

Your advice is sought.

Forget to mention that

1) We are running vCCenter Server on Windows

2) The resource pool disappear from vCenter Client

We are happy to create a new Resource Pool and move those VMs to the new Resource Pool.

Thanks

The only way i could think of is by tweaking the vCenter DB to re-assign those permissions

Better to to log a call with VMware Support. Ensure you have a snpashot taken before those changes are made.
