The certificate on 1 host could not be verified.

When I adding ESX server to vCenter in both 6.7 and 7.0 versions, I constantly get the following error, what can I do about it. I'm sure the DNS, IP, SM and NTP settings are all correct.

"The certificate on 1 host could not be verified. the sha1 thumbprints of the certificate is listed below. to continue connecting, manually verify this certificate and accept the thumbprint below."

You might want to reconfirm your IP address in the network between hosts that have been issued with certificates. I came across the same issue a few days ago where I had 1 IP address assigned to 2 hosts.

Thank you for your warning. I've done the check on the IP address twice, there is no IP similarity or any conflict on my network.

just had the same error.  Turns out it was the username and password that was incorrect.
