      Hey Guys,

       

      So i sat down to finally upgrade my vCenter server to 5.5. Everything went well with the installation. Logged into the vsphere client and checked the login and it worked. Logged into web client with admin@vsphere.local,local Administrator and also Domain Administrator. Everything worked well. Then i noticed, in web client no matter what user i log in as, the Inventory is empty. There is nothing showing up. Obviously i have missed out something so asking you guys for help here.

          did you try administrator@vsphere.local?

              First add the domain to the SSO Identity Sources and then set the appropriate permissions on the vCenter Server object in the inventory. In order to do this you need to be logged in as administrator@vsphere.local.

                Got that too. Added the permission on vCenter. Thank you!

                  Thanks for this! After trying everything else this was the only thing that hadn't occurred to me! D'oh!
