Vcenter and SSO

When I installed Vmware SSO , the domain is grayed out, it has Vsphere.local, all it prompted me to type is the password then confirm password, so I proceeded in installing SSO, then Vcenter. during The install of Vcenter through the wizard,it also does not take the domain admin user name , I had to use the Default which is provided through the wizard which is administrator@vsphere.local, well I typed a password then proceeded in installing Vcenter.

However after I installed Vsphere Client, the only way I can login through Vsphere client, is to use the user name Administrator@vsphere.local and password instead of my real domain name and password.

This is a Lab environment for Vsphere 5.5. I have not seen this issue with Vsphere 5.1.1 at work.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Install the web client.

Login to vcenter using administrator@vsphere.local

From there you have SSO and configuration.  At this point you should see identity sources.  At this point you can add your domain.  Once this is done add the account you want to have permissions to vcenter at the top level
