VMware vRSLCM certificate manager

This blog is primary a reminder to myself, on how to create the certificate to be used in the vRSLCM.

To create a certificate file for the certificate locker in the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager.

I uses the VMware certificate templates created for vSphere, as per this KB.

I create a CSR in the VMware vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager -> Locker -> certificate.

open the CSR file and copy the content for the request including “—–BEGIN CERTIFICATE REQUEST—–” and “—–END CERTIFICATE REQUEST—–“.

login to the certificate issue server, “http://<cert-srv>/certsrv” and use the request to create a certificate with vSphere template, and download certificate in Base-64 format.

Get the CA root certificate and intermediate certificate in base-64 format.

Create PEM file for import.

-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
 from the CSR file
 -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
 -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
the content of the newcert.cer file
 -----END CERTIFICATE-----
 -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
 (Your Intermediate certificate)
 -----END CERTIFICATE-----
 -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
 (Your Root certificate)
 -----END CERTIFICATE-----

Import this file.
