We are encountering this error when tring to access vCloud Director. The error reads : The SAML Authentication failed for this organization.
Sometimes when we refresh this page it works and gets logged into the vCD Portal.
We are upgrding our test environment to vSphere 5.1. We have upgraded to vSphere to 5.1 and have vCD 5.1 Suite.
This seems to be a problem with SSO, has someone seen this error?
Here is the content of the log file:
Hi this is just the cell startup log. Can you have a look in the vcd log directory for other logs that may hold more information:
I used to have vCD 5.1 SSO problems like the ones described here. In fact I didn't properly get "Federation" working with vCD until 5.1.1 drop a few weeks ago....
I must say I found SSO much easier to setup on the vCenter Virtual Appliance - it worked even from 5.0. Although I totally appreciate and understand that not everyone can use the VCSA...
BaiG1 - are you sure that all your SSO components have the same time set in the OS? Your errors seem to be around "org.opensaml.common.SAMLException: SAML response is not yet valid" this is usually because the response has a timestamp different enough to say that it's too early to be valid.
So I would check for clock skew between vCD/SSO/vCenter/all components.
