To join your VMware vCenter Server Appliance (VCVA) to an Active Directory domain, use the domainjoin-cli join command located at /opt/likewise/bin on the VCVA Linux guest operating system.

To add the VCVA to your domain, this command requires you to provide a host address, username, and password.

  • Example: To join the VCVA to the Active Directory domain sales.my-company.com, using Administrator as the username and rosebud as the password:
  1. cd /opt/likewise/bin
  2. ./domainjoin-cli join sales.my-company.com Administrator rosebud

To check the VMware vCenter Server Appliance domain settings, run this command from the vMA console:

  • sudo domainjoin-cli query
