    My client has SSO installed in “standalone mode” and now they want it to be in “multisite mode”. Is it possible to do so, without this linked mode do not work.

      @Preetam, Linked mode does work with SSO in standalone mode – just point both vCenter boxes to the same SSO instance. I've got it working for a customer…. It's not the ideal solution – http://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2013/02/linked-mo… shows the "correct" way to set it up – just ignore the SRM bits towards the end….. Hope this helps? Jack

        Can I use heartbeat for SSO and avoid using multisite SSO. My customer has two sites with two vCenters required to be in linked mode. Due to all the horror stories I hear about multisite, I was hoping to do standalone mode with the SSO protected by heartbeat. Both vCenters in the two data centers will be connected to the single SSO and in the event that the datacenter where the SSO is running goes down, the heartbeat in the second datacenter would be brought up for authentication.

        Heartbeat installation document says different subnets over the WAN are supported. If the customer does not have stretched VLANS, can this still be used for SSO? What happens if the SSO IP address changes during a disaster, but DNS is updated to reflect the new IP? Thank you for your feedback!
