Standard Lockdown and Solarwinds

I am having an issue and would like some help.

Simply put, I am just using some of the SolarWinds virtualization settings that are built into the network performance monitor.

We tried turning on standard lockdown mode on a cluster. The performance monitoring is completely broken when lockdown is on and was wondering if there was something i could do to fix that or is this to work as intended.

Before you ask, Yes I am positive the root password is correct because it all works when I take it out of lockdown. We do have exception users setup as well and none of them work either.

I knew lockdown would shut off quite a bit but also though the root account and others specified in exception lists would bypass that restriction.

Where are the users created? As local users on the ESXi hosts or do they come from vCenter or AD?

Do the users have administrator privileges on the hosts?

And can you please check if the exception users are listed in the DCUI.Access advanced option?

We joined each host to AD and added AD users to administrators privileges.

From the vSphere web client, select host and click on "Configure" -> "Settings" -> "System" -> "Security Profile". Scroll down until "Lockdown Mode". Click "Edit" and then click on "Exception Users". is how we added them.

The root user is not connecting correctly either and that is what is/had been used with solarwinds.
