VMware environments have been using Active Directory (AD) permission services for a long time. It makes sense for any server cluster already using AD-based for authentication to simply add VMware hosts for virtualization.
The article delves into the practice of using AD-based authentication with VMWare. With the exception of the setting up of user permissions in the AD environment are there other benefits? How about drawbacks?
