I installed Add-In on my vCenter Host (4.1). But if I start the plugin in vSpere Client, it tells me "User is not authorized to use
this plug-in Please
contact the Administrator and ask for StorageAdmin.readwrite or
StorageAdmin.readonly Privileges". But I am logged in as user of admin Role and this role has the StorageAdmin.* Privileges.
I found no further dokumentation for this. Links from http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/md3200i/en//index.htm to manual is broken.
OK, after added User direct to Admin Role all works fine. User was only meber of a group which was member of admin Role.
But the Dell guys should fix manual link for MD3xxx.
I have the same problem but I have no idea about Roles yet. Where did you add User to Admin Role, please?
That links was broken to me at first, too ... then I removed the double / / from between /en and /index and it worked ?
Thanks, it works.
Once you get the user's guide link working (see other comments), check out the Configuring Storage Administrator Roles section -- I believe it will answer your questions. By default, vCenter IDs start out with no rights to access the array. Once you add the appropriate roles, you're set to go.
Thanks again. I've got through.
But the plugin does really little more then give quick overview of the array status, no much use really
This thread has been confusing, but I finally found the passage in the manual. However, I am using vSphere 5 and the manual does not match up with vSphere 5. However, I am having the same problem. I did try setting up a Storage Administrator role and assigned a local (VMcenter) server group for it allowing all administrators access and then setting the permission on the cluster (to propagate down. I still get the same error message.
Also, during the process of setting all this up, several of my user permissions reverted to read-only and I cannot delete them or modify them to set them back to administrator access - so I have an additional issues now.
