vCenter 6.0 Single Sign-On Users and Groups

If you delete the administrator user in the vsphere.local domain, you can no longer log in to vCenter Single Sign-On unless you have another user with same privileges. Otherwise a reinstall of vCenter Server and its components would be required. So, lets create a second admin user.

Add vCenter Single Sign-On User:
1. Login to vSphere Web Client as administrator@vsphere.local or as another user with vCenter Single Sign-On administrator privileges.
2.  Go to Home > Administration > Single Sign-On > Users and Groups.
3.  On the Users tab, select vsphere.local domain or the domain configured during vCenter PSC installation. You cannot add users to other domains.
4.  Click the “+” New User icon. Enter the user name and password for the new user.
5.  Optionally, enter the first and last name, and email address for the user.
6.  Click OK.
Note: At this time the newly created user has no privileges to perform management operations.

Next add the newly user to a vCenter Single Sign-On Group:
1.  Login to vSphere Web Client as administrator@vsphere.local or as another user with vCenter Single Sign-On administrator privileges.
2.  Go to Home > Administration > Single Sign-On > Users and Groups.
3.  Click the Groups tab and select the group “Administrators“.
4.  In the Group Members area, click the “Add Members” icon. Select the domain as vSphere.local or the domain configured during vCenter PSC installation.
5.  Select the member and click Add. Click OK.
Now the selected user is a member of the “Administrators” group and appears in the lower panel of the Groups tab.
