We have over a dozen Hyper-V 2008 R2 Servers (standalone, not Server Core or OS role) in our organization. Love it! Great stuff.
That said, the management of Hyper-V Server leaves a bit to be desired at times. To be specific, how can I create "read only" users that can user Hyper-V Manager to connect to our corp Hyper-V Servers, but only to see which virtual instances are running?
In other words, user JSmith might have full-control over HVcorp1 server (local admin on that server), but only read-access to the HVcorp4 server. Is this possible? Can they simply be assigned to a local group on the HVcorp4 server -- such as the "users" group?
I found this Technet article which explains some of this functionality, but the process seems unnecessarily laborious.
Isn't there a better way?? If so, how?
