Have a look at this https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/7.0/com.vmware.vsphere.security.doc/GUID-32AD28E1-53C3-48E...

I think you want to use the Custom Certificate Authority mode for your ESXi host certificates.

  1. Obtain the certificates that you want to use.
  2. Place the host or hosts into maintenance mode and disconnect them from vCenter Server.
  3. Add the custom CA's root certificate to VECS.
  4. Deploy the custom CA certificates to each host and restart services on that host.
  5. Switch to Custom CA mode. See Change the Certificate Mode.
  6. Connect the host or hosts to the vCenter Server system.

Change the certificate Mode:

  1. In the vSphere Client, select the vCenter Server system that manages the hosts.
  2. Click Configure, and under Settings, click Advanced Settings.
  3. Click Edit Settings.
  4. Click the Filter icon in the Name column, and in the Filter box, enter vpxd.certmgmt to display only certificate management parameters.
  5. Change the value of vpxd.certmgmt.mode to custom if you intend to manage your own certificates, and to thumbprint if you temporarily want to use thumbprint mode, and click Save.
  6. Restart the vCenter Server service.
