So I have added a 2nd vCenter into our primary vCenter for embedded linked mode. I was under the impression that the Identity Sources would be able to be seen by the newest vCenter that has added into the linked mode. Is that true? Because I when I try and give permissions to this 2nd vCenter I get a message that the user or group does not exist? Yet, I can add it fine on the original vCenter.
1. Once you deployed a new vcenter pointed to primary one in linked mode .. have you joined the new VC to AD?
2. Have you added the permissions at vcenter level or global permissions?
only after VC is joined to AD, the global permissions inherit to the second VC.. If the permissions are at vcenter level, they will not be inherited by second vcenter. You need to manually assign the permissions
