I've had no luck figuring out this issue, and before opening a ticket with VMware, I wanted to ask here.

The single-sign on feature of vsphere client used to work perfectly.  Domain authentication worked with no problems.  Then one day I got a certificate issue.   I have since re-installed all of vSphere, no luck.  Today I managed to get a little closer by re-installing the single-sign on and WEb Client service.  

I was able to login to the WEb Client and add our AD domain back into vcenter, however when I try to login using the Windows vSphere Client, I get the following error:

* certificate signature failure

I've delete all the saved certificates as detailed in this article:

But no luck, same error.

** I can login using a domain account into the web client, so that means my domain authentication is working.

The KB Article you have mentioned is talking about the vSphere client. Have you tried connecting to web client from a different machine's browser?
Can you try that and let me know if you are still facing the error?
Also can you provide the vCenter logs?

Thank you for you input, in the end I opened up a support case with VMware.  I went from using a windows vcenter server to using the VMware appliance.
