You are the administrator of a large vSphere environment. You recently deployed the vSphere Management Assistant (vMA). You want to use a fastpass command in the vMA to connect to a vCenter Server using an Active Directory (AD) account.
- Log on to the vMA.
- Use the vMA to issue a fastpass command to connect to the vCenter Server using an AD user account.
- Ensure that the AD account is assigned the proper permissions to allow the fastpass connection.
- vMA name: vma-01
- vCenter Server name: vcenter-01.lab.local
- AD domain: lab.local
- AD user account: administrator (It is a member of the Domain Admins group in the lab.local domain)

vifp addserver vcenter-01.lab.local --authpolicy adauth
- When prompted for credentials, for vcenter-01.lab.local, enter lab\administrator.
