Alright!, Last week I was working on vRO and noticed that during AD authentication, I had to use complete email ID as user ID rather a small name which we have coinfigured as Account Name in Active Directory.

My situation was like this.

User Name -

I was expecting to get this;-

User Name - vinsight\pkjha

Configure vRO to use AD Account Name as User ID.

  • Login to vRealize Operations Console https://<IP_Address_vRO>/ui/login.action using admin credential.

  • Click on Administration Menu and expend Access in left Panel.
  • Select Authentication Sources and select AD Source which you have integrated earlier. If not added earlier then Click on + icon and add AD Source.
  • To Edit AD Source, Click on pencil icon in right side.

In Source window, Click on Details highlighted below.

  • Here you will get two options(samAccountName & userPrincipleName) in Common Name drop down menu.

  • You need to choose Common Name as samAccountName if you want to login using short account nam erather email ID.
