I am following the article from http://www.goitpartners.com/blog/?p=662 (I started following the vmware kb version, which had a whole host of errors in it!) to change the certs on the 5.1 appliance, and am having issues with the SSO service. When I run the :
'./02-inventoryservice --mode uninstall --ls-server https://demovc01.demo.local:7444/lookupservice/sdk'
I get the following error code:
Intializing registration provider...
Getting SSL certificates for https://demovc01.demo.local:7444/lookupservice/sdk
Getting SSL certificates for https://192.168.15.110:7444/sso-adminserver/sdk
com.vmware.vim.vmomi.core.exception.CertificateValidationException: Server certificate assertion not verified and thumbprint not matched
Return code is: SslHandshakeFailed
Now I know the error will be to do with the cert as 192.168.15.110 isnt in there. Where do I configure the settings fro the sso-adminserver service to use hte fqdn? I can see how I do it for the lookup service.
See if Michael's blog helps.
I've found his blogs much easier to follow
