Do I need to install/configure AutoDeploy to use Authentication Proxy?


I'm currently performing an exercise to lock-down ESXi servers against the 5.5 Hardening Guide.

One of the actions (enable-auth-proxy) requires the setting-up of an Authentication Proxy service (which may or may not be the same server that is running the VCenter service).

Some of the documentation I've see suggests that AutoDeploy is needed as a prerequisite to installing Authentication Proxy, ie:

vSphere 5.5 Documentation Center

Could somebody clarify please as I don't currently have Autodeploy configured and have no intention of doing so at this stage.

Many thanks.
