vCenter SSO works well with Univention LDAP.

Here I want to make sure if FreeIPA can work with vCenter SSO, because I read it on this page:

And thanks for the help and answer any questions from me.
Have a nice day.

    vCenter SSO error:
    Error: Idm client exception: Control not found

    There's no error log debug level which will give us all of the
    controls received by the server or all of the controls sent back
    by the server.  The TRACE level will give us some information.

Could it be that the "Control not found" somehow related with "page results control" as described in

Could be.

Is the "notes=P" in ipa logs a setting managed by the server or by the type of the query done by the client?

Yes. It means the client is requesting a Simple Paged Search by using that control.

In my past IPA 3.3.3 logs I didn't find it at the end of the log line with nentries...

It has everything to do with the client. The server has supported Simple Paged Search for a long time. Perhaps some newer version of the client is requesting paged results?

Just an attempt...

One more thing - does vCenter work with another LDAP server, like openldap or active directory? If so, try capturing a wireshark trace of a successful search operation, then capture a wireshark trace of a session using ipa, and we can compare them to see which controls the working server is sending back that ipa is not.
