    vcenter appliance - AD authentication

    roelvs Novice

      Today I was playing around with the new vCenter5 appliance. While setting up AD authentication, I had to include 'administrator' information. I tried using my own AD credentials with quite some AD permissions, but I'm not a domain admin. (standard security policy)

       

      After trying to save this authentication information, I receive following error:

       

      Error: Active Directory  global catalog is not accessible
      What are the permissions needed for this setup? Why would vcenter require 'administrator' rights?
      Thx!
