We have the need to grant access to our vSphere environment to a consultant. I only want them to be able to see certain VM's though. They have an AD account to use & vSphere is AD integrated.

Is there anyway to restrict the list of VM's that this user account can see?
I can only see how to make them an Administrator to all, or read only to all.

Hi,

Creating a resource pool to solve your problem if you are restricted with less resources like CPU and RAM,otherwise better solution is create a folders inside the VM and templates and move the machines accordingly.In each folder you set a permission level.

Doesn't matter. I worked out how. Just needed to right click the VM's individually and add permissions.

I was thinking it would be under roles etc when I would tick the VM's in a list. Obviously not :)
