  1. Log into the vSphere Web Client as the SSO administrator, administrator@vsphere.local with the password you set during installation.
  2. Click Administration.
  3. If closed, expand Single Sign-On by clicking on the arrow to the left.
  4. Click Configuration.
  5. Click the Identity Sources tab.
  6. Click the Add Identity Source icon ( ) under the options menu.
  7. Select the Active Directory (Integrated Windows Authentication) option.

    Note: If the Domain name field is not automatically propagated with the proper Windows DNS domain, enter the proper DNS domain.

  8. Select User machine account and click OK.

    After the Active Directory identity source is configured, users from that domain can be added to vCenter Server. Then you can login with AD user and password.

Close the web browser,

re-open it.

go to vSphere Web Client

username: administrator@vsphere.local

password: <the one you set during deployment of appliance>

See if this helps.
