Hello Experts,

I have a production domain of domainA.local.

I have a VMware environment with Vcenter server and several hosts. the Vcenter environment is isolated from domainA.local, in that it uses a DC in domainB.local for DNS.

I would like users from domainA.local to be able to authenticate and log in to vcenter server on domainB.local so we can track what users are making changes. Currently, all users from domainA.local log in to vcenter server with administrator@vsphere.local.

How do I go about this? I'm thinking a one way trust from domainA to domainB, and then allow authentication for users on domainB to vcenter server, even though vcenter server is joined to domainB.

Thanks in advance,
