It seems all I can do is take screen shots of the roles and then of the blue folders in VMs and Templates. I can not seem to export a list of the permmsions and roles like into a text file???


thanks!!!!

You can use vSphere Power CLi to run scripts and import/export the permissions from vCenter. You can obtain this information from many levels starting from vCenter to a VM.
