In my lab, I've tried a migration from vCenter 6.5 update 2 to vCenter 6.7 update 1.
Sadly, "as usual", I get the same error as described here : VMware Knowledge Base (I've had this error many times in updates)
Important things to know : I've a custom intermediate CA generated by an MS ADCS (don't think it changes anything if it is ADCS or another custom CA though)
Unfortunaly, the fix fix doesn't work anymore.
Would you have any idea why ? Probably something has changed ion the certificate handling...
Thanks in advance ! 😉
I had the same question and also made a support request.
The info in the KB article doesn't help.
But I got it to work.
The steps are as followed:
.1 download the web-client certificate via a webbrowser
.2 if needed, download also the intermediate CA and CA certificates
.3 download the certificate key that was created when creating the web-client certificate.
.4 create a vami.pem file which contains the content of the downloaded files in the following order
<intermediate CA certificate>
.5 upload the vami.pem file to /etc/applmgmt/appliance
.6 edit the file /opt/vmware/etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf , first make a backup of this file
find the line that starts with ssl.ca-file
change it to ssl.ca-file="/etc/applmgmt/appliance/vami.pem".7 restart the VAMI service
