I did create a bug report and it was closed with the explanation that UserVmManager role is not assigned because I'm using the Administration portal... (???). What other portal do I use? Import/Export is Admin type operation.
See here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1451501 Very simple steps to test it: - Create a local user called LocalUserA - Grant permissions to create VMs in DEV1 cluster and Import/Export VMs: LocalUserA -> [PowerUserRole] -> DEV1 (Cluster) LocalUserA -> [PowerUserRole] -> SAN (Storage Data Master) LocalUserA -> [VmImporterExporter] -> DEV1 (Cluster) LocalUserA -> [VmImporterExporter] -> SAN (Storage Data Master) LocalUserA -> [VmImporterExporter] -> SD-Export (Storage Export type) - Login to the Administration Portal as LocalUserA@internal - Create a VM, Export the VM, Import the VM Role UserVmManager is not set for the imported VM. User LocalUserA can not even boot up the VM due to insufficient permissions. How do I setup LocalUserA so it can import VMs and work with them?
