VSR 8.6 PEM File Error

hbrsrv will not staart

Error in log is :

 

2023-11-13T22:24:51.351Z verbose hbrsrv[01711] [Originator@6876 sub=Crypto] Loading Private Key '/etc/vmware/ssl/hbrsrv_broker_private.pem'
2023-11-13T22:24:51.351Z verbose hbrsrv[01711] [Originator@6876 sub=Crypto] Loading Public Key '/etc/vmware/ssl/hbrsrv_broker_public.pem'

2023-11-13T22:24:51.352Z panic hbrsrv[01711] [Originator@6876 sub=Main] [0] Could not compute a reasonable expiration time for private key '/etc/vmware/ssl/hbrsrv_broker_private.pem'

 

I've recreated the SSL certificate but get the same error

The dates on the 2 PEM files are earlier that the crt file

I hate to say it, but we would need more logs and details, Have you opened a VMware SR? If so DM me the SR number and I'll take a look

thanks for your reply

 

In the end, I deleted the VSphere Replication Add-On appliance and re-created it and the vm replications

I had this issue with VSR 8.7 and it persisted after updating to 8.8. I fixed it by deleting /etc/vmware/ssl/hbrsrv_broker_private.pem and rebooting the system so a new .pem was created.
