Is it possible to add other users to access the VCSA interface ONLY https://ipaddress:5480 without AD or SSO configuration?

I can see a number of tutorials on adding users via shell access but yet I can not get in to the VCSA web GUI after. I also found this -

http://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2013/09/virtual-appliances-getting-more-secure-with-vsphere-5-5-part-3.html

However same issue, I can create a user with SSH access but I can't get to the web interface.

  • Why do you want this? In normal usage, NOBODY should need to access the VCSA configuration page other than the root user. Can you provide more context on what you're doing? – ewwhite Sep 16 '14 at 18:16
  • Company wants a way to separate users as this interfaces houses the update and upgrade and reboot features etc... This is for logging purposes. – user242610 Sep 16 '14 at 19:18

That doesn't make sense. Restrict access to the VCSA management interface or establish a policy around the use of its password. The vCenter Server Appliance was not meant to be used in a multiuser fashion. If you need more granular permissions, open a support ticket with VMware. They will likely say the same think about its usage, though...
