2 Questions (Install location / SSL replacement)

The install location for vCenter 5, 64bit is c:\program files correct?

Does anyone know where the SSL replacement procedure document is for vCenter5 and web client (Server) is?

Thanks

Install location by default is c:\program\files but this can be changed during the installation -

The SSL location I believe by default will use the server default -

Correct, it's \Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\VirtualCenter Server.

I don't believe this has changed as of 4.1 - http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1029944

FYI, you will also need to replace the SSL certs for the new inventory service shipped with vCenter 5.

After replacing certificates with wildcard issued by proper certificate authority with ESX3.5 & ESX4 I am not going to bother with ESX5/VC5

It is just a nightmare!

Some things do not work right ever, one has to do it in n number of places

Some passwords need to be filled in plain text etc

Far cry from what it outght to be (simple & logical)

But good luck doing it...
