  • Resrticted VM file restore access
    Posted: 05-23-2019, 10:06 PM

    We are protecting customer's VM in Shared cloud (other customer share the host and datastore)

    I have assigned the security permission in Commvault account ; however; when I login with the customer commvault username and password in the console he can still see the option to restore VM and can look at all the hosts and datastores in the share envrioment.  I want to restric his view only to his VMs and he should only be able to do file restore to his VMs.  

    • Browse: Browse virtual machine data.
    • In Place Recover: Recover files and folders to the source VM.
    • Live Browse: Browse files and folders from a backup that did not collect file details.

      Note: If a virtual machine is configured to perform file system backups and is also included in backups for Virtual Server Agent backups, this permission is required in order to perform file system restores.

    the account permission for backing up VMs require these hosts/datastore permissions. Any ideas how to just let customer has access only to his vms on the Commvault console so that he can only restore guest files/folder.

    If you are refering to VMWARE credentials; we have tried creating an account with permissions only to the VMs but the backup fails with error unable to download config file; howwever when we allow permissions to host and cluster along with the vcenter server; the customer can view the whole infrastructure during the restore option.

    customer is a part of a user group customer_gp1 and CV_restricted_visibility

    the GP1 role only has browse,download, live browse and in place recover and overwrite on restore option
