You can change your SSL configuration from using a user-managed keystore to a vCenter Hyperic-generated keystore.

For best security, do not configure vCenter Hyperic to use self-signed certificates.

Verify that the vCenter Hyperic and the vCenter Hyperic agents are stopped.

1

Open ServerHome/conf/hq-server.conf in a text editor.

2

Set the value of accept.unverified.certificates to true.

3

Restart the vCenter Hyperic server.

4

For each vCenter Hyperic agent reporting to the vCenter Hyperic server, open AgentBundle/AgentHome/agent.properties in a text editor.

5

Set the value of agent.setup.acceptUnverifiedCertificate to true.

6

Save your changes and restart the agents.
