The below is the second architectural decision flowchart in my new series and covers a new feature in vSphere 5.1, Single Sign On.
There has been a lot of discussion around “Best Practices” for SSO, I have taken the approach of creating this flowchart with as many scenarios as possible.
I would recommend that you validate any configuration the flowchart results in is suitable for your environment prior to implementing into production.
The flowchart is designed to be used as a guide only, not a definitive decision making resource.
This also compliments some of my previous example architectural decisions which are shown in the related topics section below.
