vCenter Windows 6.0

Hi All,

Certs have expired on the 6.0 Windows vCenter

Tried to run certificate manager , and its erroring out at 

Status : 60% Completed [Reset vpxd-extension Cert...]
2022-11-15T17:32:46.179Z Updating certificate for "com.vmware.vim.eam" extension

Status : 0% Completed [Reset operation failed]

please see C:\ProgramData\VMware\vCenterServer\logs\vmca\certificate-manager.log for more information.

Did try the KB https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2112577

But getting the error:

As your post needs moving to the area for vCenter Server, I have reported it to the moderators.
