Vcenter 6.5 Certificate Field Blank/will not issue to ESXI host.

Hi all,

Having an issue with the VCS certificate Manager w/ESXi hosts.


VCS is 6.5 latest build, ESXi hosts are 6.5 latest build. VCS is on Windows, not VMCA.

edit* the VCS does have a valid trusted cert from our CA. No issues there.

I'm having two issues that are more than likely related:


First in the VCS under the certificate tab of a selected host - the certificate data field is just blank. No data. Cannot figure out why I'm not seeing ESXi host certificates.And when i say blank - just a blank field.

Second, when I try to renew the host certificates, the job says it completed, but it actually never did. After restart of the host/agent - the ESXi still shows the old certificate. Obviously nothing is reflected in the VCS because the cert tab is blank.

I have 12 hosts and they all do the same thing.

Google has been useless as well VMWare docs.

Any help would be appreciated!

Was the ESXi host in maintenance mode when you renew or refresh certificates on ESXi host?

Thanks,

Sir,

I've tried it both in and out of maintenance mode. No success either way.
