vcenter v5.5 not working after joining a domain

I have a vcenter v5.5 install that was originally setup for a non-domain setup...  Since then I joined it to the domain and I can't connect my vsphere client to it.  The username I'm using is Administrator@vsphere.local.  I assuming it's a permissions or DNS issue.  Any ideas of what I need to do?

When you say 'if you use a local administrator account' what exactly do you mean?  The default vcenter 5.5 install creates an account called Administrator@vsphere.local in it's user DB, correct?

Local Administrator account, in the Administrators group on the server.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Have you gone into the web client and assigned the domain as a valid authentication source and made domain admins part of the Administrator (Vmware) group? If not, you will not be able to login into the VSphere as a domain member.
