Step 3– After that, click on Add. Choose Active Directory (Integrated Windows Authentication) on the Identity source type option as this is a vCenter Server based on Windows. Choose the use of a machine account.

Step 4- Now, you can go through the identity source on the list, as given below. Now select the domain and click an icon to set it as the default domain for vCenter. Read the warning.
