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?

Thank you,

-- Peter
