I’ve talked about vMA and Active Directory (AD) integration before, also upgrading and troubleshooting it. This time out, we’re going to talk about doing this on vMA 5.0. I’ll start with the assumption that you’ve deployed vMA already.
Attaching vMA 5.0 to Active Directory (AD)
- Make sure vMA is in DNS
- Make sure vMA is using your DNS server(s):
- Check DNS:
- Set the hostname:
sudo hostname vma.provmware.local
- Do this stuff:
vi-admin@localhost:~> sudo domainjoin-cli join provmware.local firstname.lastname@example.org
Joining to AD Domain: provmware.local
With Computer DNS Name: vma.provmware.local
Warning: System restart required
Your system has been configured to authenticate to Active Directory for the first time. It is recommended that
you restart your system to ensure that all applications recognize the new settings.
