Just a quick post about vCenter 7.x vs vCenter 6.7.
There is a new ‘permission’ requirement you will need to add to your users role if you are deploying OVAs. This will be seen in the ‘Select Storage’ menu of an OVA deployment.
In vCenter 7.x, you will need to add the permission ‘Profile-driven storage > Profile-driven storage view’ to your users ‘Role.’
Log into your vCenter with creds that allow edit of user roles. Navigate to Administration and select ‘Access Control > Roles.’ Select your Role from the menu and click the edit icon. Scroll down to Profile-driven storage and then select the check box for ‘Profile-driven storage view.’ Click Next then Finish.
Users impacted by the added permissions will need to log out and back into vcenter to use the new permission.
