  • 1.  Cant access certificate management from HTML5 UI

    Posted Nov 22, 2018 01:17 PM

    I am running vCenter Server for Windows 6.7U1 with embedded PSC on Windows Server 2016.

    Login to certificate management from HTML5 ui fails with message "Invalid server IP/FQDN, or credentials"

    All the information I typed in is correct. I tried restarting the server but the error persists.

    Here are the browser console logs:

    /ui/certificate-ui/ctrl/vecs/login:1 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 401 ()

    14:04:10.482 main.bundle.js:1 ResponseError OK, status: 401, data: Response with status: 401 OK for URL: https://(my fqdn)/ui/certificate-ui/ctrl/vecs/login, url: https://(my fqdn)/ui/certificate-ui/ctrl/vecs/login

    n.catchResponseError @ main.bundle.js:1

    14:04:10.484 main.bundle.js:1 Encountered following error: [CERTIFICATE] Certificate Operation Error Object

    n.handleError @ main.bundle.js:1

    I would be happy to provide other relevant logs if someone can point me to them.

    I'm not sure which service is responsible for the certificate manager, but I noticed the vmcad service is missing from my installation.

    I ran the certificate-manager tool from the console and chose option 7 to "revert last performed operation by re-publishing old certificates".

    After that I can access the certificate manager from the HTML5 ui again.
