To make a user unable to perform tasks on a particular virtual machine, remove the permissions of the user for that virtual machine.

Removing a permission for a user does not remove the user from the list of users available. It also does not remove the role from the list of available items. It removes the user and role pair from the selected inventory object.


  1. Click Virtual Machines in the VMware Host Client inventory.
  2. Right-click a virtual machine from the list and select Permissions.
  3. Select a user from the list and click Remove user.
  4. Click Close.
