vC 4.1 -> v5 Upgrade + Certs

Hi,

Our existing vC 4.1 SSL certificates are due to expire mid Jan 2012. We are also about to upgrade to vC v5, could someone comment on if the certs will be renewed during the vC upgrade process?

thanks

Hmm, I don't think they will be renewed, because having the certs issued is a whole seperate matter from just installing vSphere/vCenter. However they might still work through that end-date.

It also depends on who the cert was originally issued by....

Hope this helps.

I did my upgrade two days ago. I did the cold transfer type. My certificates were renewed and show that they were issued on 12/10/2011.

Have performed many vCenter 4 to 5 upgrades...SSL certs have not been replaced by the vCenter 5 installer. Note however that the certificates in my case were issued by a trusted certificate authority and were not the default VMware self-signed certs (though I can't see how that would make a difference).
