I'm running ESX 3.5 and would like to give a user access to the console, but only for certain machines so he can reboot etc, is there any way I can just give him access to a specific machine via vShpere or vCentre?

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, it's easier to do this with vCenter Server.

    Drop the Virtual Machine into a Folder, and Grant Permission for him ONLY to this Folder.

    (Folder View is Available from Inventory > Folders VMs and Templates.)

    Also create a Specific Role, for this User, Add the User into the Role, Add the Role to Permissions for the Object (Folder)
