[SOLVED] Clone from Template "Node appears unavailable"


Jan 9, 2019
Harrisburg, PA
Setup a group and created a new role with all of the VM. privileges except VM.Backup and VM.Monitor. Whenever a member of this group attempts to clone from a template all of the nodes in the drop-down are outlined in red with "Node xxxxx appears to be down!" however the nodes are all online and available. I tested by logging with an account in that group and added the VM.Backup and VM.Monitor privileges via root but same issue. What other permissions are required to allow a user to create a clone from a template? I've reviewed the users and privileges wiki and none of the listed appear to related to cloning and have a snip of all of the privileges assigned to the group below. Essentially this is a group that has nearly all rights except for host related and storage related.
