      Hi All,


      I have tried all the possible combinations however exception users in lockdown mode does not seem to work. I have seen few articles online as well but they doesn't seem to help


      These are the steps that I've tried


      • Joined esxi domain to AD
      • Joined vCenter to AD and added AD as identity source
      • from VC --- highlighted esxi --- choose exception user as an AD account
      • enabled strict lockdown mode


      When I try to login to esxi directly via url https://esxIP/ui and enter the AD credentials .... it returns permission denied error




      on the vcenter for the esxi this is the setting that I have configured

      Any suggestions where am I going wrong ? Thanks
