VMware Infrastructure Client - Allowing Users Access to Specific Blades

How do I allow users (in a AD Group) access to specific blades in the VI Client.  I only want them to see those specific blades when they log in.

What do you mean blades, is ESX running on blades?
Are you trying to permission access to certain VM's?

In your VMI Client, choose "hosts and cluster" view, then right-click on the blade which access rights you wish to modify, and select "add permission", then add this group and assign "Read Only" right to it.

MikeGGG  CLose but I am loking to grant access to a specific cluster.  I cannot get to my vi site from where I currently am but suspect your answer will give me what I need to accomplish my goal.  

To ne more specific, I want to allow departmental access to the cluster specific to that business unit.  The cluster contains only their vms.

Go to cluster and then select permission tab and under that you can give permissions to users

You can grant permissions for specific VMs, or, better way may be to organize VMs into folders on departmental basis into folders and then grant access to these folders to specific user group(s)
