You must create a user account in Active Directory to use with vCenter Server. You specify this user account when you add a vCenter Server instance in View Administrator.

The user account must be in the same domain as your View Connection Server host or in a trusted domain. If you use View Composer, you must add the user account to the local Administrators group on the vCenter Server computer.

You must give the user account privileges to perform certain operations in vCenter Server. If you use View Composer, you must give the user account additional privileges. See Configuring User Accounts for vCenter Server and View Composer for information on configuring these privileges.
