Docker-machine on vmware vsphere without admin rights

I created a new docker machine on our VMWare Vsphere server, using the vsphere admin user.

However, if I change the vsphere username/password in docker-machine’s config.json to a user that has restricted rights (only on one folder within vsphere) I can’t connect any more even though the boot2docker VM is in the folder where the user has all permissions.

I also can’t create a new machine with the restricted user since the VM is created in the root folder of vsphere initially.

Is there any way to solve this? Can I use docker on vsphere with a restricted user?
