Users with only-read access should be able to deploy patterns in a multi-system environment

A user can deploy virtual system patterns, virtual application patterns, and shared services to a multisystem environment.The placement alogorithm determines if all the VMs in the patterns will be placed
(1) on one system or
(2) across multiple systems.Currently, users with read-only access can deploy patterns in a multi-system environment only when all the VMs are placed on the same system, that is,
(1) above.
These users cannot deploy if the VMs are placed on different systems, that is,
(2) above.The enhancement request is to enable the read-only users to deplo instances across multiple systems.
