For the role exercise, you create and define the limited role in the vCenter Server by using the vSphere Client.

If you create or edit a role on a vCenter Server system that is part of a connected group in Linked Mode, the changes that you make are propagated to all other vCenter Server systems in the group. Assignments of roles to specific users and objects are not shared across linked vCenter Server systems.

Verify that you are logged in as a user with Administrator privileges.

Access the list of privileges in Required Privileges for the Deploying a Virtual Machine Example.


On the vSphere Client Home page, click Roles.


Right-click the Roles tab information panel and click Add.


Type a name for the new role.

The name is Deployer of virtual machine from template.


Select privileges for the role and click OK.

The role Deployer of virtual machine from template is ready to be assigned to your selected user or group.
