I recently changed the vcenter identity source from Kerberos to LDAPs. We now have a problem of logging into the vcneter using mydomain\user format instead we have to use firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are using base DN in the vcenter (DC=mydomain,DC=local) fro search order.
I have a backup appliance that is configured to use Bind DN and i was able to log into mydomian\user format.
Why we can not use mydomain\user with the base DN?
