VCWN-06-000009 - The system must use Active Directory authentication.
The application must ensure users are authenticated with an individual authenticator prior to using a group authenticator. Using Active Directory for authentication provides more robust account management capabilities. NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.
If the server hosting vCenter is not joined to the domain follow the OS specific procedures to join it to Active Directory. If local accounts are used for normal operations then Active Directory accounts should be created and used.
