Dear all,


I'm trying to figure out what I need to do on a standalone ESX for an

to have access to ONLY 1 VM, but being able to undo his changes (put the
disks in undoable mode).

I'm an windows guy but know some linux basics, I suppose I need to lock down
access to the vmx and/or

Vmdk or folder. The esx admin guide is not helping me a lot.


Granting the esxadmin role, grants him to many permissions. I can see
esadmin is not a member

of root, but can open the consoles of other VMs, which I disapprove.


Any help would be appreciated.
