Implementing VMWare Single SignOn (SSO) using VMWare WebClient

In this post, we’ll learn the steps to implement VMWare Single SignOn using VMWare WebClient on VMWare 6. In the old posts, we have learned the steps to install and configure VMWare ESXi, install and configure vCenter Server. VMWare ESXi 6 make it’s own domain with the name of VSphere.local and we need to login to vCenter Server using the domain vSphere.local domain. This would result to an issue if we have to delegate access to a user who is part of our Organization’s domain because SSO is not configured by default.

By implementing VMWare Single SignOn using VMWare webclient we can allow Domain user to access and administer VMWare environment. Single Sign On also helps in delegating permissions to domain users. VMWare introduced Single Sign On (SSO) first time in ESXi 5.1. SSO is configured using WebClient and not by using vCenter Server. Please take a note, VMWare is planning to deprecate vCenter Server in the upcoming versions.
