Error while extracting local SSO users again :(

I went trough the forums history and the knowledge database.I  try all the effort to

configure the AD connection with the vCenter, but I still got error in the vCenter web client.

The Identity-source was set up ones with AD  and the other time  with LDAP settings. 

Both test was ok , but the domain users or groups didn't come up in the list in non of the cases.

I do not see any problem with  PTR records in the DNS or other DNS config.

Can you give me some idea what is the cause of this error in my environment?

I also configure SQL database.I use the MYDOMAIN\VMuser service account on vCenter.

DB_and _schema_creation_scripts_MSSQL  installed the VCDB and vpxuser on  SQL server 2012  to create the background for the VMware connections.

I'm having the exact same problem. Have you been able to resolve it @silkas?  My domain name is mydomain.mycompany.internal. My SSO domain name is vsphere.mycompany.internal. So I thought that might be the issue.  If I SSH into the vcenter appliance, I can ping fully qualified names correctly and I can nslookup them as well.  Eg. I can ping mydomain.mycompany.internal and mydomaincontroller.mydomain.mycompany.internal.    However, understandably, with my vcenter name is actually 'vcenter', and I can't ping vcenter because the suffix is slightly different, whereas I can ping vcenter.vsphere.mycompany.internal.
