Can someone tell me what identity source is created by default on a new install of 5.1 ? It appears that the one we had created used ldaps, but I don't see any evidence of us having a certificate configured for use(it's broken now so I'm trying to bring it back the way it was). Does an SSO install create an identity source or do you have to create the first one after install manually? I don't remember creating one after install.
During Single Sign On installation, the installer can automatically discover Active Directory identity sources, if your system meets the appropriate prerequisites. See the section "Network Prerequisites" in Prerequisites for Installing vCenter Single Sign-On, Inventory Service, and vCenter Server.
just go thru this Adding AD authentication to VMware SSO 5.1 | Gabes Virtual World you can remember back. but in version 5.5, if your vcenter added to domain, then you can use it as identity source as default and no need anymore ldap config.
