Unable To Login To vCenter Server Vsphere 5.5

I am running vCenter 5.5 and am able to login with domain credentials via the web client.  However, when I attempt to logon with the regular vSphere client, I receive an error message:
"The vSphere Client could not connect to "server-name. You do not have permission to login to the server: servername".

The account I am using has domain admin rights and as I stated, I can logon to the web client with no issue.

I exited out of the vSphere Web Client.  When I logged back in using Windows Authentication, now it appears I have no access to the system.

Did you use the same creds again?

Can you check if you can login with

Administrator@vsphere.local in the vSphere Client (the password is the one you used for SSO!).

and then add the correct permissions to the ROOT (vCenter object)
