I have turned on the likewise debugging to try and help figure out why, some hosts in the same cluster will authenticate to AD but others will not.
Over 400 hosts are authenticating and over 600 are not.
VMware version 6.5 Build 9298722

Any help would be appreciated.
With that many hosts, don’t you have support? (That would be my first course of action)
We do have support yes - And that support from VMware told us to set up a cron job on the hosts to periodically restart the AD service.
I am just looking on here to see if someone has any more insight -
Here is another error -
admission failure in path: likewise/lwsmd
with the corresponding update from VMware which doesn't work because we tried it -
