I have been asked to update ssl certs on a clients VMware 5.5 instance which has me stumped.
SSO and inventory updates worked fine, get to vcenter update step 2 and I get this error

[Fri 08/30/2019 - 8:56:16.08]: Cannot log in to vCenter. Please check C:\Users\admin\Downloads\ssl-certificate-updater-tool-1308332\logs\vc-update-ssl.log for more details

I can login to web client but not desktop client as email@example.com.
I can login to web client as domain user but get sso error from desktop client.
I have read and confirmed this isn't set in vpxd. VMware Knowledge Base
I have tried VMware Knowledge Base and step 8 I get this error

I hope someone can enlighten me on the cause/resolution.
