vSphere connectivity Error - Invalid username/password/url 

Nov 24, 2014 07:12 AM


While we were integrating ITPAM with vSphere, using out of box connector, we faced a problem of Invalid username/password/url every time.

Configuration was done as per ITPAM documentation.

We checked log file C:\Program Files\CA\PAM\server\c2o\log\c2o.log

and found following exception was being generated all time when request was made:

java.rmi.RemoteException: VI SDK invoke Certificates does not conform to algorithm constraints


The problem was with java security on ITPAM server. vSphere version 4.0 was running which was sending a certificate with low security and java version on ITPAM server was higher and was expecting a more secure certificate.

As vSpehere could not change vSphere, so below lines were commented (hashed) to make it work:


In file: (Whichever java version is being used by orchestrator)
C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\lib\security\
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_45\jre\lib\security

Disable (hash out) the following line
jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms=MD2, RSA keySize < 1024


Restart orchestrator

On VMware end webservices should be exposed.

Are you getting any exception/error in log file mentioned?

It might work. You might be facing same java security problem. Try to comment above mentioned lines and see if this works.
