------------------------------------------

             Summary: DOC:VMWare: Steps to limit CCP to access only specified Data Centers
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-4788
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-4788
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Doc, VMware
    Affects Versions: 4.2.0
         Environment: NA
            Reporter: Parth Jagirdar


Admin may not want to share Administrator password; And may want to limit cloudstack accessing
only a certain DC's.

In such cases adding a VMWare DC would require following steps.

•	Add a user (standard user) 
•	Go to the DC that CS needs to manage and under Add Permissions, add the user with Administrator
role
•	Create a zone in CS, providing the DC and vCenter information along with the newly created
user credentials

This way CS would only have access to that specific DC and Root Administrator password will
not be compromised.
