You need to SSH to vCenter server with root user and then you can add vCenter users.

Check article below .

Thank you Chirag for the informative link.
However, is there a Web /  GUI way to add local admin users directly in vCenter 6.5 "Administration"  page?
Also, is it mandatory to add users first in vCenter Appliance to be added for vCenter Server administration purpose.  As I understand the vCenter Appliance  is purely for maintenance and Backup purpose.

Hi cgeorgeisaac,

Instead providing other users administrator access, if your users are trustworthy provide them local administrator access.

vpshere.local\Administrator

From GUI you can add local users.

Main Menu -> Administration -> Single Sign-On -> Users and Groups -> Create user -> Goto Groups tab and assign that user to Administrator group.

Let me know if it works for you.
