hopes you all well .
I am trying to install a plugin for vRNI on vCSA. But I getting an error . Aldo on the end there is a message that plugin is installed on vCSA , plugin isn't show .A restarted services and vCSA just in case.
A try with different versions but the same result. ( PS version 5.1 , 7.1 and 6.2.4). It seams to be a problem with cert.
could someone help me?

One more thing; to keep track of the usage of this plugin, we would like to know some details (vCenter version, and the number of VMs & Hosts). Can I phone home? No hard feelings, if not. 🙂
Phone home? (Yes/No): n
That script is part of a Fling, so no official support I'm afraid.
It seems you already reported this same error in the Comments section of that Fling.
Perhaps it would be better to wait for a reply from the authors of the Fling, instead of cross-posting.
The script produces some output while running, that you apparently didn't include that.
I suspect that the script isn't able to capture the certificate from the plugin, which the missing thumbprint in the output seems to confirm.
you are right. I will wait.
Output I didn't show
I'm posting here because it seems like the plugin is installed and not shown in CSA. maybe something can change in my environment .
