unable connect virtual machine to the local CD/DVD devices when
login user on the local machine (MS Windows OS) is another user than user with
administrators rights. Configuration: acces using vSphere client installed on MS
Windows local machine to vCenter 4.0 server. Thank You very much for
assistance and any idea.
Well is your (customer) CDrom labeled as F? If yes, then it is his CDROM (like in picture). check labels in My Computer.
letter F is label of CDROM devices my local PC, is is ok.
problem with connection to CD/DVD devices is only if I am login to my local computer (MS Windows OS) as a normal user without administrators rights.By
by login as administator user is no problem.
It looks like permissions problem (in VC) . Check to what group does this customer (or customers) belong in Virtual Center. Then check their permissions if they can mount CD
Access to CD/DVD local devices from vSphere client and any virtual machine depend on local windows user name a local policy - system permission local user and local groups only.
