admin@system-domain not showing ESXi hosts

We are using VMware 5.1.  The problem is that when we are using admin@system-domain account to log into the vSphere Web Client it is not showing any Cluster or ESXi hosts or VM. Is there any configuration form VMware end still pending?

Is this a new implementation, or you've just discovered this logging into the Web Client ?

if you login to the vSphere Client, do you see Hosts and Clusters ?

e.g. have the ESXi hosts been added to inventory, and cluster created ?

We don't have any problem with vSphere Client as we are able to view all the ESXi hosts and clusters.

I am able to login with my domain account in vSphere Client. Is there anything related to authentication that I am missing for admin@system-domain acccount?

Have you added an authentication source to vCenter Server/SSO.

If you login to the Web Client with Domain Account ?
