this host does not have any virtual machine networks, or you dont haev the permission to access them

We just migrated all our ESX servers from vcenter 2.5 Update 5 to vcenter 4 as a part of upgrade. when we give access for users to change VLAN for a virtual machine i see the error as above.

i attached the screenshot of the error. all the VLAN configurations (network) are correct and virtual machiens on that VLAN working fine. I gave Rights to change the seettings for virtual machine. Even i gave Administrator rights for testing. Nothing worked out.

Any suggestion much appreciated...

i think this might be a bug in the process of vsphere upgrade.

some other bugs i noticed are

1) You cannot send Ctrl alt del on a VM ..

2) Permissions not working on Virtual machines for users to change settings.

Just a thought, allocate permissions on the network objects themselves under Inventory -> Networking.

hi.

As you said that is correct. but in vsphere there is a bug. Permissions wont apply if you give something at virtual machine level. to achieve this

give readonly permissions at cluster level... and on that VM assign appropriate rights. this is a bug.

it will will be solved in vSphere Update 1 thats going to come in 2 to 4 weeks.
