vRealize Operations 6 (vRops) has different SSL certificate generation requirements than the older version. I have not found it publicly documented anywhere so here it is:
- Generate private key:
openssl genrsa -out vrops.key 2048
- Create certificate signing request:
openssl req -new -key vrops.key -out vrops.scr -days 365 -sha256
- Sign vrops.scr by your Certificate Authority
- Create PEM text file which contains signed cert from #2, private key from #1 and CA certificate (optionally intermediate certs as well)
- Go to vRops admin portal and click the certificate icon in the top right corner (next to admin). Install the new certificate by uploading the PEM file from #4.
Wait a little bit and then re-login. Reboot is not necessary.
