OpsMgr 2007 – Author Privileges

Have you run into setting up permissions/privileges for your administrators within the scom console. This can be quite confusion. You often run into cryptic areas where certain functions don’t react as they should and you run into the error “The user domainuser does not have sufficient permission to perform the operation”.

Some important information here:

Reset Health Permission

Goto your user role area for your author group. The “tasks” tab is where you need to add “Flush Health Service State and Cache” task.

Allow viewing the ‘overrides’ under ‘authoring’

You need to allow access to all “views”. You can still lock down which machines they view by the “group scope”, and “author scope” locks down which targets (or rules/monitors/etc) they can modify).

*I haven’t found a way to lock down the views yet. If you know, please let me know!
