I'm getting this error every time I try to add any of my vCenters to vRA8.
Unable to validate the provided access credentials: Failed to validate credentials. Error: Failed to connect to vCenter: Your certificate may be untrusted. To trust the certificate validate your account credentials and accept the untrusted certificate. Save your cloud account after validation succeeds. Error: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target Cloud account: null Task: /provisioning/endpoint-tasks/261cdb286c4ad07559d52415ad8
I have tried restarting the vRA appliance. I've also tried a couple of vCenters and both throw the same error. Nothing pops up to validate any certificate. Curious if anyone else has encountered this?
Have you got a proxy configured?
If you do, you need to disable the Proxy to add the vCenter server and accept the certificate. Once you have accepted the certificate you can re-add the proxy and the endpoint will continue to work fine. This occurs even on 8.0.1 HF1.
There is a fix you can get if you register a support case with GSS which fixes this proxy issue (and other proxy issues for the provisioning-service); I assume it will publicly available in HF2/8.1.
I don't think I have a proxy configured, or at least I don't remember setting one up during the initial config. Any ideas where I go to disable it? I'll also check the docs and see if i can find something.
SSH to the appliance and run vracli proxy show.
In the resulting output look for Enabled: true|false.
You can only set it through vracli so if you don't remember doing it it's unlikely to be enabled.
Have you tailed the provisioning-service pod logs to see what's happening?
