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?

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.
