Deployment Manager + internal SSL certificate

Greetings,

Has anyone used Deployment Manager with internally issued SSL certificates?
It appers DM is unable use those during login and gives the error:

"Cannot access vCenter Server due to a certificate error. Check that vCenter Server uses valid certrificates (signed by a trusted CA and issued to the correct vCenter Server name)."

And there is no option to accept the certificate.

I've opened a case with HPE support and they are suggesting to replace the certificate with an old one and after deployment install the internally issued certificate back. But it's very weird there is no option to accept the certificate.

Maybe there is an opton in Deployment Manager's App.config file?

Re: Deployment Manager + internal SSL certificate

I dont believe there is an option as support were saying, it may be the case you have to install the cert after the deployment (back to your cert)

That being said, there is an option to disable the harvest of the cirtificate during deployment. as in some cases that may not be feasible during a deployment.  In order to work around those issues, you will need to replace the below element in the Deploy Orchistrator.XML 

<HMS>
<RootCertificates harvest="false" />
</HMS>

 support will need to assist you with this process
