Cannot assign bridge to new VM


Mar 17, 2021
When I try to create a new VM using a non-root user I get stuck at the networking part. The existing Bridge vmbr0 does not show up for this user. When I do this as root everything works as expected. Attached screenshot shows the empty selection field.

I am pretty sure that this worked before I upgraded to version 8 yesterday. I'm also pretty sure that it's just a question of adding the correct permission, but I cannot figure out which one that might be.

There is a new "localnetwork" item in the tree view. You need to give the user permissions to use it. PVESDNUser should work as role.
