I first tried to delete a VM and got an error that I did not have remove VM rights...I followed up with trying to create a role that had rights (already an admin so figured I create a new role with all right)...tried to apply role to server directly and got the following...
Window Primary Text
Error:Permission to perform this operation was denied.
You do not hold privilege "Permissions > Modify permission" on virtual machine "VM Name"
Call "AuthorizationManager.SetEntityPermissions" for object "AuthorizationManager" on vCenter Server "vCenter Server FQDN" failed.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated
Welcome to the Community - What user ae upi cpnmnecting with? What permissions foes that user have assigned directly as the user or a group you might be a memeber of - you can check this by selecting the permissions tab of the VM
Custom User Grp Virtual Machine user (sample) Propogated from parent folder
Administrators administrator Propogated from root
I get the effective permission of 'VM User" even though I am an administrator and a member of the custom grp. I tried removing the custom grp membership from my account and I am still restricted from admin lvl management of any VMs in this folder....the rest of the vSphere environment is working normally
currently researching any powershell command to remove the permission from the folder
For thise who reviewed this issue...thanks for the comments
I hope you don't do the same thing to your vCenter permissions
