You can add a domain to vSphere Authentication Proxy from the vSphere Web Client or by using the camconfig command.

About this task

You can add a domain to vSphere Authentication Proxy only after you enable the proxy. After you add the domain, vSphere Authentication Proxy adds all hosts that you provision with Auto Deploy to that domain. For other hosts, you can also use vSphere Authentication Proxy if you do not want to give those hosts domain privileges.

  3. Click Services, click the VMware vSphere Authentication Proxy service, and click Edit.
