Change VM network permission to single VM

Hi,

I followed KB1020934 and point 9 says to assign permission at data centre level.

I want to restrict this to a single VM

in the data center there are many clusters/host and this would allow permission to all which I do not want.

please advice

thanks

Hi,

in this post they explain how to proceed:

I need to give read only access to all clusters/host to same user/group so I can not specify “no access”

Any suggestion how to achieve this?

why permission has to be set to datacenter level if I just want it for a specific VM?

HI,

You can create a role and assign to a group. Check out this article:

yes but issue remains the same, you cannot assign it to the VM only.

I managed by:

Set at DC level allowing network changes

Set at Cluster level with RO

Set at Folder level with RO

Set at VM level

What is the specific end result you are looking for, in terms of what you WANT and DO NOT WANT the user to be able to do?

What did you exactly need to do ?! If you want to provide networking permissions for vSphere standard networking, it's better to set on host or cluster level ... why do you set it on datacenter level?!

If you need to set the permissions for a specific VM belongs to a cluster, create a Folder for that VM, and after creating your role, assign it to the folder level.

For other read-only access, what do you need clearly?
