Hi,

I have this message when logging on to Vcenter 5.1:

The authentication server returned an unexpected error: ns0:RequestFailed: Internal Error while creating SAML 2.0 Token. The error may be caused by a malfunctioning identity source.


There is an article about it: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2034798

But doesn't work for me. Didn't change anything on the config.
Do you have/had the same issue?

Please advise.
J.

No, never seen this issue, on any client site, including our own.

Fair enough, still have the issue. Therefore I opened another ticket.
VCenter authentication remotely doesn't seem to work, on VCenter itself it does.
Will close this ticket now.
