How to Generate SSL Certificates for vRealize Operations

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:

  1. Generate private key:
    openssl genrsa -out vrops.key 2048
  2. Create certificate signing request:
    openssl req -new -key vrops.key -out vrops.scr -days 365 -sha256
  3. Sign vrops.scr by your Certificate Authority
  4. Create PEM text file which contains signed cert from #2, private key from #1 and CA certificate (optionally intermediate certs as well)
  5. 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.

Install CertificateWait a little bit and then re-login. Reboot is not necessary.
