  • This issue can happen due to time sync issues, if the ESXi host time is incorrect when compared to vCenter Server.
  • Please verify the time on ESXi and vCenter Server before proceeding with below steps. 
  • Method 2
  • Connect to the ESXi using Host ClientSelect Manage TabSelect Advanced SettingsLocate the option "Config.HostAgent.ssl.keyStore.allowSelfSigned"Edit the value from false to trueReboot the ESXi host.
  • Retry adding the ESXi host to vCenter Server or certificate renew operation As per article:* "A general system error occurred: Unable to push CA certificates and CRLs to host",
