Expired 5.5 Certificates.

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I'm new to communities.

My custom vCenter certificates have expired since the end of last week & the service is not starting. I am getting a error when running the scripts saying sso is not installed anybody any ideas for a workaround/solution?

Thanks,

Jim

Hello Jim

You will have to regenerate new certificates and then replace them.

You will have to create a certificate request, csr, file and then get your custom certificate, either from Microsoft CA, or a third party cert authority.

Wild card certs are not supported. You will have to get a new cert for each vCenter component.

Then once the rui.cert and rui.key are available, you will have to replace these certs for each components.

Use this below link for certificate replacement:

VMware vCenter SSL Certificate 101

unfortunately, that will not work. because the SSL-updater tool cannot replace the vCenter certificate to the new one, because it can not even login to the vCenter. that is the problem.
