To update Read-Only Operator user role properties

  1. Log on to the computer with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators role for the Operations Manager 2007 management group.

  2. In the Operations console, click the Administration button.

  3. In the Administration pane, expand Administration, expand Security, and then click User Roles.

  4. In the User Roles pane, right-click any of the existing Read-Only Operator user roles that were previously created from within the User Role list, and then click Properties.

  5. In the Operations Manager Read-Only Operators - User Role Properties dialog box, on the General page, click Add.

  6. On the Select User or Groups page, enter the users or groups that you want to assign to the user role, and then click OK.

    Adding a machine account to user role member would allow all services on that computer to have SDK access. It is recommended that you do not add a machine account to any user role.
    Steps 1 through 6 are the only options available to you when configuring user roles that were created by default during the installation of Operations Manager 2007. The following steps are available for new user roles that were created by you.
  7. In the User Role Properties dialog box, on the General page, under User role name, you can type a new name for this user role.

  8. Click the Group Scope tab.

  9. Expand the Groups list, and select one or more object groups.

    You will need to clear the check box at the root level of the list before you can select any other groups.
  10. Click the Views tab.

  11. You can configure the views that members of a user role can see. If you want to configure a subset of available monitoring views, click Only the views selected below are approved, and then click the desired approved views.

    If you do not select All views are automatically approved, including views in management packs imported in the future, users assigned this role will not be able to open alert views from within Health Explorer.
  12. Click Apply, and then click OK to close the Operations Manager Read-Only Operators - User Role Properties dialog box.
