Joining Active Directory domain

I am unable to join my vSphere to my active directory domain. The vSphere domain is "domain.local" and our AD domain is also "domain.local". Is this allowed?

It is always good to keep different domain names to avoid these cases.

Hi,

No, it is not possible with the same name.

I think you got an error message.

Agreed with @Alex_Romeo. Furthermore, Active Directory (Integrated Windows Authentication is apparently becoming deprecated in newer releases. You'll be required to use the Active Directory over LDAP option instead. Since you've integrated recently, I might suggest to "convert" over to the latter instead to avoid having to do it in the future.
