To change the domain of a vCenter Server system in a Linked Mode group, isolate the vCenter Server system from the Linked Mode group first.

vCenter Server systems in a Linked Mode group can be in different domains if the domains have a trust relationship.

1

Isolate the vCenter Server system from the Linked Mode group.

2

Uninstall vCenter Server and the other vSphere components (Inventory Service, vSphere Web Client, and Single Sign-On) if they are located on the same system.

3

Change the domain of the vCenter Server system.

Refer to the documentation for the operating system on which vCenter Server is installed for more information on changing the domain.

4

Re-install vCenter Server and the other components (Inventory Service, vSphere Web Client, and Single Sign-On) if they are located on the same system).

5

Rejoin the vCenter Server system to the Linked Mode group.
