I am not able to login in vcenter server, but able to login from local account. How to resolve this issue? I have contacted AD team and got the certificates from them. How to enable AD authentication for Vcenter Server?
Is the AD added as an identity source inside the 5.1 SSO?
Also, what sort of error do you get on trying to login with the domain creds?
In case the AD is added as an Identity source in SSO. You may check this by logging into vSphere Web Client with sso administrator credentials (admin@System-Domain) > Select Administration under Home > Go to Configuration > Select Identity sources and ensure that the AD is added here.
Once the AD is verified to be existing under Identity sources > Login to vCenter with your local account > Go to Permissions and add the AD user here.
Are you using smartcard authentication?
Did you try the step mentioned by vuzzini?
"Login to vCenter with your local account > Go to Permissions and add the AD user here."
Actually, I dont have access to check that. I am not the super user, how can i confirm that my id is not added in vcenter role without having administrator privilege. Many Thanks.
I had admin access earlier but i was not super user, for past 2 weeks, i cannot login.
There are few possiblities for this issue.\
1) Host not added to Domain
2) Domain account lock out. check with AD team to verify your account status.
3) Lack of permission for domain account in vCenter. Access the vCenter using VI client with local account, and make sure your domain ID has required permission on vCenter.
Can you get somebody who is the super user check your permissions on VC?
