If you want to add an Active Directory identity source to Platform Services Controller, you must join the Platform Services Controller appliance to an Active Directory domain.

If you are using a Platform Services Controller instance that is installed on Windows, you can use the domain to which that machine belongs.


  1. Log in to the Platform Services Controller Web interface at http://psc_ip_or_dns/psc as an administrator user.
  2. Click Appliance Settings and click Manage.
  3. Click Join, specify the domain, optional organizational unit, and user name and password, and click OK.

What to do next

To attach users and groups from the joined Active Directory domain, add the joined domain as a vCenter Single Sign-On identity source. See Add a vCenter Single Sign-On Identity Source.
