Update Manager 5.1 SSL Certs problem

I have my virtcenter 5.1 SSLs replaced and they appear to work well, but I am having issue replacing SSL certs for Update Manager.  I have stopped the Update Manager service, replaced the rui.crt,rui.key,rui.pfx files into the C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\Infrastructure\Update Manager\SSL folder. and ran the UpdateManagerUtility without issues, then start the Update Manager service again, it still only sees a brand new self-signed cert from vmware from update manager.  The virtcenter ssl cert and inventory certs are ok.

I have tried these steps http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=2037581&sl...

Is there something else am I missing here?

Hi

Is it CA signed  or Microsoft CA signed ?  What do you mean by you still see brand new self signed certificate ?

I used a Microsoft CA signed cert like I did for the rest of virtcenter components.  I saw a new cert that was issued by VMware(the day I change cert procedure) not my Microsoft CA server.

Hi,

From my knowledge , VMware does not provide seperate certificate,  default certificate get  generated while installation of software compoenet. Can you give some details, where do you see new certificate for Update Manager.

I see the new certficate was generated when I go into Update Manager to upload a patch/plugin or when I look at the cert when I pull up https://myvirtcenter:9087/

Sure, I'm attaching the file..  I originally installed this virtcenter and all in November.   The timestamps you see are when the last time I tried doing an update on the certs.
