VCSA6.5 web client log on

We are having problem to log on to VCSA6.5  using Windows session authentication without plug-in. If we enter user id and password manually then we get  "invalid credentials error" .
If we check the Use "Windows session authentication" then we can log on.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is this VCSA 6.5 added and connected to a Windows AD Domain ?

Is the client you are using part of the same domain ?

Yes, it is part of the AD. AD users can only log on using the check box option in the browser.  
If I enter my log on is manually then it says invalid user.
Only change was on the vcsa  is the latest update.

When you tick the box use Windows Credentials, it's likely it will use Domain Credentials, and that sounds like what VCSA 6.5 is using by default.

if you use normal username and passwords, that's checking local machine credentials on VCSA 6.5 and not working.

I would check what is the default Auth Source on VCSA 6.5

The default authentication is set to mydomain.local. This should allow anyone with Domain credential to log on by entering username and password instead of log on to computer then click on the check box ?

That is correct. e.g. without specify any domain name.

It is my problem, it only allows the user who logged on the computer and the check box has to be checked for "use Windows session authentication".
