vMWare User accounts and Role Administration in a AD Integrated Environment

lipotech asked
Last Modified: 2020-01-21
I am managing a VMware v6x environment that is currently AD integrated. I have a question concerning how to manage roles in an AD integrated environment.  Do I mange the users' roles from within AD using GPOs or do I manage the User Roles from within the Web Client? I need to determine the most expedient and secure method to manage User account roles within a VMware configuration that is AD integrated.  I have a current AD group for example, AD_vSphere populated with all of the VMware users as members.  Once again, should I control the Roles settings from within AD or the Web Client console?
