I am currently trying to add a ESXi cluster I have into Foreman 1.4.1, and am running into a problem with permissions. Currently, I've given a service account the following rights:

  • Datacenter-Level:
    • Datastore -> Allocate Space
    • VM -> Inventory -> Create New
  • Cluster-Level:
    • Datastore -> Allocate Space
    • Network -> Assign Network
    • Resource -> Assign virtual machine to Resource Pool
    • VM -> *

With that we still have issues with assigning interfaces to a Network, and I cannot create a disk for the specified machine. Does anyone know the minimum permissions necessary for foreman to provision on a vSphere cluster?

    Good question. Did you ever figure this out? – Belmin Fernandez Sep 23 '14 at 15:11
