You can use vCenter Single Sign-On with Windows Session Authentication (SSPI). To make the checkbox on the login page available, the Client Integration Plug-in must be installed.

Using SSPI speeds up login for the user who is currently logged in to a machine.

Your Windows domain must be set up properly. See VMware Knowledge Base article 2064250.

Navigate to the vSphere Web Client login page.

2

If the Use Windows session authentication check box is not available, click Download the Client Integration Plug-in at the bottom of the login page.

If the browser blocks the installation by issuing certificate errors or by running a pop-up blocker, follow the Help instructions for your browser to resolve the problem.

Close other browsers if you are prompted to do so.

After installation, the plug-in is available for all browsers. If your browser requires it, you might have to allow the plug-in for individual sessions or for all sessions.

Exit and restart your browser.

After the restart, you can select the Use Windows session authentication check box.
