I have an ESXi Server with a vCenter virtual appliance image and an image of a Windows 2008 TS.
The Windows 2008 image has an external Ethernet connection configured to another network, so users can login via a terminal session and get access the virtual machines on the ESXi Host via vCenter image.
It’s all working really well, but I have one problem - SSO. I would like to control access for the vCenter via the users configured on the Windows 2008 R2 Server, but I would also like to avoid installing AD functionality on the image because I want to keep it simple and keep the Windows 2008 fast and light.
Is this possible in any way? I have tried to read up on AD LDS, but can’t figure out if that I what I am looking for?
