          What do you mean by 'console'? CLI or anything else?

            What is the version ?

            You mean , deleted administrator@vsphere.local account ? Do you have alternate administrator account created post installation ? SSO admin account is necessary to login to SSO administration page to perform SSO admin tasks such as creating users etc..

             

            .
