okay now getting this under the permissions settings on the host: Call "UserDirectory.RetrieveUserGroups" for object "ha-user-directory" on ESXi "esxi_host1" failed.

I think I would remove from domain, and re-peat and re-add to domain correctly.

also remove the account from AD first, and also reboot after removing from domain.

check time is correct on host and matches Domain, check no issues in AD, between DCs, perform dcdiag, and repadmin /replsum

You now have the answer, to selecting correct response.
