Hi,

Please see http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/VMWare/Q_28000877.html#a38797370

I seem to not be able to connect from VDR/VDP or veeam to vcenter. I can however (for VDR) directly connected on an ESXi. Probably related to sso ...?

Please advise how to troubleshoot.

the vmware administrator account you are using does not have admin access.

use the same vmware account that you use to login via the vSphere Client

Note: if I go to vcenter webaccess (after message of ssl) via Internet Explorer I always get
res://ieframe.dll/, no problem via Firefox.
