Add a vCenter Single Sign On Identity Source Active Directory (Windows Integrated Authentication)

This is a second part of my article How to join vCenter Server appliance to Active Directory, and here I am configuring Identity source on Single sign on. In my one of the previous article ADDING AND CONFIGURING VMWARE VSPHERE VCENTER SSO ACTIVE DIRECTORY AS LDAP SERVER  I used AD as ldap server, contrary here I am trying Windows Integrated Authentication as identity source.

Before processing make sure vCenter server appliance is joined into Active Directory Domain.

Next navigate to the path on the Home >>  Administration >> Configuration >> Identity Sources and click ADD IDENTITY SOURCE. This automatically detects Domain name joined earlier, click OK. Select the external domain and SET AS DEFAULT. vCenter Single Sign-On uses the default domain to authenticate a user who logs in without a domain name. Users who belong to a domain that is not the default domain must include the domain name when they log in.

I will just test on Global permission adding AD user or Group. From the drop down list of user, I see AD is listed.
