I've created a domain account and assigned it virtual machine user and datastore user rights. I can't logon to the vCenter server. I get "You do not have permission to logon to the server". I don't want to give the account local admin rights to the VC server.
I've done this before however, and have another domain account that actually works. This account IS NOT a member of the local admins group (or any other group on the VC server for that matter). I can log in with this one fine. The new account is set up identical as far as I can tell.
What's going on?
try login with administrator local.
check too if fqdn are correct.
datastore user at the datacenter level
virtual machine user at the folder level
This is the same as the other group that works. Only difference is the permissions apply to two different sub folders
I actually just tried adding my new group to the working one and it works fine.
Then re-added to the other folder and it now works too
Go figure. It was definately there before .. honest!
