Having issues changing the domain controller in VMware vCenter authentication

We are in the process of changing our domain controllers to two new ones. The issue I am running into is vCenter is pointing to the old domain controller for authentication using the DNS name. I'm not sure what i need to do to get this changed over to the new one. Anyone have any ideas.

Thanks

you can log into the web client using the SSO admin@System-Domain account

and then go to Administration -> Sign-On and Discovery -> Configuration

then you will be able to edit the domain connection

refer below link to change Domain controller  name
