    In my case, the “Use Windows session credentials” checkbox was not allowing me to login, but leaving that checkbox unchecked and then entering my AD credentials manually was working fine.

    I had the proper records in both my Forward and Reverse Lookup Zones and was still having issues. So the PTR record wasn’t going to be the fix for me.

    I left the domain, re-joined it, rebooted the server, still couldn’t login with that checkbox.

    My issue was much simpler. I was missing the domain name in the Host Identification section of DNS and Routing Configuration. Ironically, the ESXi server won’t let you configure this if you are currently joined to a domain. So I had to Leave Domain again, configure the domain name in Host Identification, and then re-join the domain. After that, I was able to login using either the checkbox or with manual credentials without any issues.
