Add vsphere 6 to use domain single sign in

Hi all. I have one domain to which the single vsphere 6.0 is a member server. When i log onto the vsphere client (i use fat client not web) i log on as administrator@vsphere.local
My question, how can i configure vsphere to enable domain users to log on, so link vsphere to domain. I know it can be done but i can't see any options in the fat client. My ultimate aim is to create a user role and add a domain group to it, and have users use single sign on to logon to the vsphere client.
Thanks all

Hello Jason, To be able to use Active Directory users and groups, you must integrate your vCenter server or vSphere with Active Directory. The below KB will help you to integrate vSphere with Active Directory:

After the integration, you would be able to use AD users and Groups in vSphere to login or assign any access level you wish..

I can't access the web client. I can logon then i get the error about having to have Adobe Flash. I'm running Windows 10 which has this built in but i can't get around the error. I get a splash screen saying :"You'll need a new app to open this vmware-csd". Any tips?
