    The error you get is because of self-signed certificate that vCenter/ESXi Hosts assign to themselves when you're installing them.

    If it's bothering you, you need to get a valid Web Server/SSL certificate from an internal trusted CA or a comercial CA.

    If you already have a CA in you enviroment I suggets you to install OpenSSL on your vCenter server and request a SSL Cert from your CA.

    You can follow the detailed instruction from the following links;



    Hope it helps,

    Refer Implementing CA signed SSL certificates with vSphere 5

    Additionally you can take a look at the blog for changing default SSL certificates.

    I have the same issue. I remember that with previous version I could solve this certificate warning issue by installing certificate via browser or local certificate console to a trusted publisher store. I just needed to save the certificate file from a vcenter. But isnt´t that possible anymore? I don´t have my own PKI and I don´t want to spend any money on certificate because of this. I may have a lack of understanding this certificate issue :smileyplain:
