Esx Host does not show up in Vsphere Web Client

I have installed Web Client,, and I can log into it using my Domain credentials, but when I click on Hosts and Clusters, it shows empty.


However if I logon to Web Client using Administrator@Vsphere.local, then from Home Tab,select vCenter then select Hosts and Cluster…I can see the same thing I see in Vsphere Client.

 

This is a LAB, so VMs are inside local datastore of ESX host

This is what you need to Do.

First, login into vSphere web client using Administrator@vsphere.local.
Go to Administration>Sign-On and Discovery>Configuration. Select the "+" symbol and add you AD domain as an identity source.

If you have already done this, Select your AD domain and click on the globe symbol(Default domain). After you do this the domain will show up in the permissions drop down tab.

Now go to Home>vCenter server. Click on the vCenter object. Select Permissions Tab(in vSphere client) or Manage>Permissions (In vSphere web clirnt).
Add the permission by clicking on Add permisssion. In the drop down of domain you have to choose your AD and then select the user/group and give them Administrator role.

Now you will be able to login using the Domain credentials and see the inventory.
