Vmware 5.1 Greyed out options on menu

hello.

I’m using the VMware client (vsphare 5.1), When I right click on a VM I have basic rights.
I can power on/off machines – open console and a few other minor things.

But can’t create/ change configuration or remove from inventory.

In the Roles area I’m in a group located under administrator. Appears I have full rights?

So not sure why I can’t do a few things?
Any idea?

This group needs to be assigned the proper roles.  Just because it's under Administrator doesn't necessarily mean it inherited the Admin role.

Excellent thanks for that - I was in another group which only gave me basic access.
Removed from it and rebooted now have full access.
