IMO having vCenter installed in a workgroup your adding a layer of extra administration by now not only managing an AD infrastructure but now have to manage your users within a workgroup -

I agree with weinstein5 in that it's just additional administration overhead.  Unless you are attempting to accomplish something specific then I don't see a reason for doing it.

Thank you for your swift response. As per my understanding, All the features in 5.1 will work in vCenter without domain or workgroup? Am right???
