VMware 5.5 – Authentication issue with SSO and Windows 2012 AD

I am sure that if you read this article, you have same issue everybody has. Don’t worry that because the solution is not hard as you think.

My scenario is like this;

Windows 2012 Active Directory and Windows 2012 vCenter server. It does not make any difference but I want to say that SQL server is also 2012 + Windows 2012.

After Vmware is upgraded to 5.5, we have an authentication problem while trying to access Web client. The error was ”

cannot parse group information”

The easy solution is type this format to username : name@domainname.local


If you need an official solution, we have it as well.
