Integrate VMware vCenter Single Sign-On (SSO) with Active Directory

Single Sign-On (SSO) is a part of vCenter Installation and important step in Authentication and Authorization
once you install vCenter you would have a “vSphere.local” Domain in your server, it would be better if you could integrate your existing Microsoft Active Directory (AD) environment with your organizational structure of groups and users.

So before we start with the configuration i will login with my Domain User and check that i can see anything (vCenter, Datacenter or Hosts)

And as you can see under my vCenter there is nothing of my Datacenter or Hosts

So to start as my luck i added my server to a domain already in my Earlier Blog
so to complete the steps here and add give permission to users
Go to Administrator – Single Sign-on – users and groups
1
so to give a permission for my self
From drop down i can change the “vsphere.local” to “mynaghi.com”
2
i put in the search my name so it will not list the whole organization
3
and if you go under Adminstration – Single Sign-on – Configuration – identity Sources

you see from were you get your configuration
for my case i already added my server to the domain4
so to configure the user and give him access so in Home Page
vCenter – vCenter Servers – Then Select the VC-CCIEROOT.Mynaghi.com
then click on “Manage Tab” – Permission – +
5
Select the Assigned role as Administrator
6
I change the Domain to “Mynaghi” and in the Search bar i put my name and Click Add 7
Now I press OK8
As you can see now it show under the permissions9
Now let me login using my Domain Username & Password again
10
and as you can see i can see under the vCenter my vCenter Servers, My Data Center and My Hosts11
