Welcome to Clearpath’s coverage of VMworld 2013 in San Francisco. We have a team of engineers in attendance this week, where we’re learning about the latest and greatest releases from VMware as well as bulking up our knowledge of best practices, architecture improvements, and innovations in the industry. We’ll be providing additional detail over the coming weeks as additional information and documentation becomes available, and as our virtualization team works to upgrade the beta versions of these products in the Clearpath labs to the GA versions.
Released on April 4, 2013, vCenter Operations Manager makes the next step forward in managing your vSphere environment.
During the installation of vCenter Single Sign On (SSO), the installer will attempt to detect the Active Directory (AD) domain for the logged in user and add it as an Identity Source. For the most part, this works fine; however, I’ve run into a couple of instances so far deploying vSphere 5.1 to customers where they either want to add a second AD Identity Source or for one reason or another (running the installer as the local administrator is a typical case), the installer didn’t properly add a non-System-Domain Identity Source.
