do you have virtual centre, becuause this integrates with active directory.

otherwise you have to create accounts on the esx server, using the vsphere gui

If you have vCenter server the users can be added from the local users and groups, or from Active Directory (preferable).

If you want to create ESX/ESXi users use the vSphere client to create new groups and users.

Remember that ESX/ESXi users and vCenter Server users are different users.

Pg. 88 of Datacenter Guide begins discussion of user roles/permissions; pg. 92 on how to create and the defaults in ESX/ESXi; pg. 99 on permissions:

Basically, as a high-level 'how to', you just log into the host directly to create a user on the host/users tab. Right-click in the 'white space' and select Add User (or Create User). As mentioned above already, if you're using vCenter, you can add your AD users as well. See pg. 89 of the Guide for how to do so.

Hope that helps...let us know.
