Join vcenter server to domain controller

Jump to solution

Dear expert,

I wanna connect vcenter server to Active Directory as LDAP.

- I have wondered that we might no need administrative privilege of DC to retrieve credential from AD, just normal user?

- in case the user have change password in AD, will it affect to vcenter or not?

Thank you all for your advise.

The user should not need admin permissions.  It will need the ability to join the machine to the AD and verify users that are logging into vCenter.

When the user changes their password, vCenter will also need to be updated.  AD functions will fail if this is not changed.
