| If local accounts are used for normal operations, Active Directory user accounts/groups must be created and then associated appropriately for normal operations. To create a new role with specific permissions, associate the newly created role to an Active Directory group, and associate that group to an NSX Role, do the following: |
Log on to vSphere Web Client with credentials authorized for administration, navigate and select Administration >> Access Control >> Roles >> Click the green plus sign, enter a name for the role, and select only the specific permissions required. Groups can then be assigned to the newly created role.
To associate the newly created role to an Active Directory Group, navigate and select Administration >> Access Control >> Global Permissions >> Click the green plus sign >> Click Add under Users and Groups >> Select the appropriate Group and assign the appropriate role.
Navigate and select Networking and Security >> NSX Managers >> NSX Manager in the Name column >> Manage tab >> Users >> Click the green plus sign >> Choose Specify a vCenter group, enter FQDN of group name, click Next >> Select the appropriate NSX Role and click Finish.
All local windows accounts must be removed from the vCenter and Windows server.
Application service account and user required privileges must be documented.
