I installed and configured the new Grizzly release and now I want to make some test with VMware vCenter 4.1.0, but when I try to boot a virtual machine, there is a stack trace about permission into Nova-compute log file:

2013-04-09 16:05:12.529 4589 CRITICAL nova.virt.vmwareapi.driver [-] In vmwareapi:callmethod, got this exception: Error(s) NoPermission occurred in the call to RetrieveProperties

Is this a known issue?

Have you looked at the permissions on vCenter?

Do you still need help with this?

Well, "NoPermission" on vCenter typically means the user you used to login doesn't have the permissions needed to do something. The fact that this happened on RetrieveProperties probably means that the driver tried to look at something it doesn't have permissions to look at. Check user roles.
