View user membership in vmware

If I understand VMware uses Roles as groups.
I would like to know how to view members of each existing role.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

To take advantage of roles in VMware, you have to use vCenter (You can use either vCenter deployed on a Windows machine or a vCenter appliance).

Launch VMware vSphere client and go to Home | Roles.

Select the role whose members you are interested in seeing on the left, and you should then see the user(s) with that role on the right.

The members of the roles, are based on your User Groups, which are defined in Active Directory or Local Accounts.
I will slightly expound on the above - if you use vCenter, then as @hanccocka suggests, your user membership for groupings would be in AD, or membership that is LOCAL to the vCenter Server host (when adding a Permission in vCenter to vSphere objects - folders, VMs, Datacenters, etc. - and you add "users/groups", the Domain section has <server> or YOURDOMAIN to choose from to add Users (or groups & group membership again would come from your AD directory).

If you're referring to ESXi Host, your membership is simple...just a local user created on the Host in the Local Users & Groups tab.
