we are trying to integrate esxi host with AD and was able to successfully join with AD.
[root@esxi:/usr/lib/vmware/likewise/bin] ./domainjoin-cli --loglevel verbose join --ou OU=Servers,OU=test,DC=net dc.test.net testuser password
Joining to AD Domain: dc.test.net
With Computer DNS Name: esxi.dc.test.net
But i am unable to login to host via ssh or gui , Can someone tell me the the next step to give privilege to user
thanks let me check. but one more question I am using 6.5 webclient so I don't see the ad users or group in esxi webclient. in this case how we can assagin permission to user ? I tried via vc but that' also not working
You won't see those users in the web client unless you want them to have permissions inside vCenter to the applicable host. They're two different levels of permissions: One for root access to ESXi; the other for vCenter access.
I struggled also with web client not showing any AD users or groups even though I was joined to the domain. Solved it by removing original Identity source (WIns auth) and replacing with LDAP ID source and it was able to show all AD users and groups.
