Is it somehow possible to assign permisions to non-admin user to monitor and move cluster group? Is there any workaround for this? I'm interested in Windows server 2008 r2 and 2012.

I'm avare there is read-only access for monitoring from Windows Server 2008.

Are you using System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager? If so, you should be able to setup the Self Service Portal to enable this. – Harold Wong Feb 6 '13 at 20:10
Thanks. But this also gives full admin permissions on Cluster? I need to restrict user to only one resource group. – malibeg Feb 7 '13 at 8:52

You could write 2 scripts: one to view information about the specific resource group and one to move the group. Then delegate rights to non-admin users to execute those scripts against the cluster(s) using System Frontier. The user won't have to have any rights on the server. Full disclosure... I own the company that makes System Frontier.
