  • Vsphere 4.0 Creating users

    I am trying to create users in a fresh install of Vsphere 4.0 ESX. Everytime i try to add a user it kicks me out saying that i do not have the proper access or i do not have the proper permissions.
    I am logging in as the root account.
    Is there something new i have to do to allow myself access? i am connected as the root account. i am at a loss please help


    thank to all who reply

    mlabs,

    Could you provide a little extra information, or you attempting to create the accounts via the Service Console or connected to the Vsphere Client?

    TIA,

        Can you verify that on the Permissions Tab that the root user is granted the "Administrator" role?

          By default root access is not allowed via a remote putty session. You will have to log in with a less privilaged account and then elevate to root using su -

          I take it that's why your trying to create the additional account.
