  • View Only Rights

    Group,
    Do anyone know the settings to use if they want a person to have only "View" right to the ESX Virtual Center. What permissions do I have to specifically assign? I want them to be able to view the VMs, datastore, network, etc. but not have the ability to change any of the settings.

    Thanks

    Read -only rights (with propogate) from top down will allow them to see it all in the Hosts and Clusters view, and to see the VM folder structure the same in VM and Templates view.

      Re: View Only Rights

      Thanks for the post.. But, maybe I am not being clear.

      I have a group of developers that I manage their ESX Host. However, I have given them permissions to start/stop the guests, do snaps, etc. They have expressed interest in being able to view the datastore information, so they have some idea of how much space they are using with all of the snaps. So. what setting / settings do I have to check for them to get view rights.
      Thanks

        Forgot to add. We are running ESX 3.5 with VC. Also, I dont want them to see the other clusters or datastores, just their own.

          If you do not want them to see other clusters - You can apply deny right on the other cluster so they will not see it.

          To give them rights to see the datastores you do that on the datastore level you can add the permissions there as well.
