VMWARE VCSA7 Appliance and WSP certificate renewal

Hello,
I want to ask if anyone has encountered a problem with VMware Vsphere, I have several Vsphere 7 machines as an appliance, when renewing the certificate via

/usr/lib/vmware-vmca/bin/certificate-manager

3. Replace Machine SSL certificate with VMCA Certificate

The certificate was exchanged correctly
is the only one that does not renew the wcp service certificate

Could someone advise how to extend the wcp certificate
Thanks for advice

I tried that just now and anyway, even if everything goes correctly, the certificate is not extended according to the statement from

root@localhost [ ~ ]# /usr/lib/vmware-vmafd/bin/vecs-cli entry getcert --store vpxd-extension --alias vpxd-extension --output /certificate/vpxd-extension.crt
root@localhost [ ~ ]# /usr/lib/vmware-vmafd/bin/vecs-cli entry getkey --store vpxd-extension --alias vpxd-extension --output /certificate/vpxd-extension.key
root@localhost [ ~ ]# python /usr/lib/vmware-vpx/scripts/updateExtensionCertInVC.py -e com.vmware.vim.eam -c /certificate/vpxd-extension.crt -k /certificate/vpxd-extension.key -s localhost -u Administrator@vsphere.local

First time when I see a such error. 
What is your vCenter version?

As your post needs moving to a different area, I have reported it to the moderators.
