System Administrator role in Lab Manager

Today one of the Administrator users of VMware Lab Manager was attempting to import templates she had created.  Unfortunately she ran into a snag.  She was lacking the security privileges need to complete the tasks she was attempting.

The level of administration required was that of a system administrator role.

Info:  The Systems Administrator Role can only be defined in the Global Organization.
To enable this role:

1.  Log in as a user with System Administrator access in Lab Manager

2.  Change the Organization view to Global

3.  Under Manage > Users and Groups | Select the user and click properties

4.  Under “User Role in Global Organization, change to “Systems Administrator”

5.  Save


After this have the user log out of Lab Manager and log in again and the new role should be active.
