When a vCenter Single Sign-On user account is disabled, the user cannot log in to the vCenter Single Sign-On server until an administrator enables the account. You can disable and enable accounts from one of the vCenter Single Sign-On management interfaces.

Disabled user accounts remain available in the vCenter Single Sign-On system, but the user cannot log in or perform operations on the server. Users with administrator privileges can disable and enable accounts from the vCenter Users and Groups page.
