I am trying to replace SSL certificates on my ESX 3.5 host. I am able to generate the cert request using the following command
openssl req -new -key ./rui.key > request.csr
I then take the certificate request text and generate the new certificate from our CA. I copy the certificate to /ect/vmware/ssl and restart the mgmt-vmware service. When I try to add the host to my Virtual Center 2.5 server I get an error stating
"Failed to install the VirtualCenter Agent Service."
If I copy the old cert back it connects fine. Any ideas?
For more information about VirtualCenter server certificates, including information about how to replace them, see Technical Note, "Replacing VirtualCenter Server Certificates."
We are having this same issue.
I, too, have followed this, and other, documentation but with no success.
I am using the openssl 0.9.8g lite version installed on our VC Server (certificate generated for VC works fine).
