I have a vcenter appliance and freeipa running in my environment. There are no windows machines at all, nor will there be. I have setup vca to authenticate via LDAP to IPA and this works PER USER. the issue im having is even when defining the groups context, i can not see any groups, and the freeipa users lack SSO capabilities.
At work, we have vcenter 5.5 with a server 2k12 DC and the domain users have sso and groups work.
Can anyone shed any light? there is a previous question @ VMware vCenter/ESXi with FreeIPA instead of Active Directory?
where this is discussed but the "answer" isn't helpful at all. the final comment on the page does describe my particular issue precisely though.
