I use a Hyper-V 2008 R2 cluster, and I've two types of admin (full admin and management server admin).

I would like to give to the management server admin only the right to start/shutdown the virtual machine but I don't want that they could create, delete or modify the existing virtual machine.

Is it possible to do that and how?
