Permissions to resize a virtual disk

Hi,

I have created a role for our workstation support team to allow them to manage the handful of utility virtual workstations we have (this is not VDI, but rather general purpose workstations to do simple batch jobs etc that don't require a full server).  I have given them various permissions to deploy from template and manage existing VMs.  However, when they try to resize the virtual disk of a workstation, it fails with permission denied errors.  Does anyone know the specific permission a non-admin user would need to be able to resize a virtual disk?

Thanks

Unfortunately, I already had Extend virtual disk and Allocate space check boxes checked.  There must be some other option that I am missing.
