I tried to install Vcenter on windows 2008, it requires Single Sign on (SSO), I installed SSO, but it will accept by default, the username administrator@vsphere.local, if I give it the administrator@mydomain.com , it will not take. So I went ahead and and used administrator@vsphere.local, however when I try to add permission and add users or groups, it does not show mydomain in the drop down box.

How can I install SSO with my domain credentials?

Thank you

Please re-install SSO leaving the admin@System-Domain as it is, just add a password [Do not change this for your domain details]

The default Single Sign-On administrator is admin@System-Domain with the password you specified at installation. You use these credentials to log in to the Single Sign-On administration tool in the vSphere Web Client. You can then assign Single Sign-On administrator privileges to users who are allowed to manage the Single Sign-On server. These users might be different from the users that administer vCenter Server.

administrator@Mycompany.local

No! leave admin@System-Domain as it is no changing this to reflect your domain. When you have installed this then you can add additional administrators from AD.
