Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am trying to connect an ESX 5.0.0 to our Domain Controler, in order to give a Domain group specific roles security. But I do not see any groups after the host connects to the domain.

Under Configuration -> Authentication Services - I connected the host to the domain: enter image description here

I created the role I wanted, with the selected approved features enter image description here

But when I want to add a permission to a set of VM's, I can not see "my domain" on the drop down, only the: "localhost" enter image description here

  • How do I see "my domain" on the Domain drop down - so I can select the domain group to give the role to?

I want to point out that I followed the instructions to connect to the domain form VMware site on how to (just taking the part of creating a role and adding permissions)
