Permission to browse iso for CDROM on VMware VCenter

Hello,

I am trying to assign the permissions for someone to press the "browse datastore" button for mounting an iso to CDROM in VCenter 5.5. They have the permission to connect and connect at power on, but they cannot change the iso file. Since I have Administrator permission, I can change it for them, but I would like this power user to have that ability. Does anyone know what permission(s) I need to select?

Thanks

datastore permissions. (but you may not want to give them this, because then they have access to ALL your VMs, and download them!)

Which datastore permission would I need? I added browse datastore, but that didn't work

did you also select the datastore, you want to to browse, and add them Datastore permissions as well?

So you need to select the datastore view, select the datastore, and select permissions and add that user or group, against the defined role. (and browse datastore).

That's just creating the roles.

You also need to grant permissions to:-

1. VM Folder
2. Datastore

You can attach  client ISO device using vsphere client... No need to store anything on datastores.
