Granting one AD user to view a Console on one VM


  • How do I grant 1 Active Directory user the ability to use the console on one Virtual Machine in VMM without playing around with clouds or giving them administrator rights on everything?

    That's it. One would think you could right click on a VM, go to properties, then click on security.

  • How do you present the VMs to your users?

    Are you using VMM console or App Controller?

    Anyhow, the self-service user role is the key here. First, you must add this AD user to this role, and eventually give explicit access to this one particular VM. 

    Yes - the user will see the cloud, but only his/her VM. The cloud is the only option as it is completely abstracted from the underlying resources.
