vcenter add permission to domain user

Hi Experts,

I have configured my ESXi6.0 hosts to be into the domain.
But when I want to add some permission I cannot see my domain to choose.
Is it possible to test somewhere if my hosts in the domain or not ?
I need to add permission to my vcenter for some domain users.

Adding ESXi hosts to the Domain, and vCenter Server permissions in the Domain are different.

Is it possible to test somewhere if my hosts in the domain or not ?

login via ssh, with a Active Doirectory/Domain user account ? (rather than the root account!)

I need to add permission to my vcenter for some domain users.

Select the permissions tab, in vCenter Server, and Add the users.

SSH is running but the login with a domain user is not working.

I want to add permission for my domain user.
When I click PERMISSION and ADD PERMISSION I just have the choice between SERVER and VSPHERE.LOCAL.

How to add my domain here ?

You need to add your Domain as an Identity Source in SSO.
