You can configure your vCenter Hyperic agents to use SSL when communicating with the vCenter Hyperic server.

You must configure SSL for each vCenter Hyperic agent.

Verify that the vCenter Hyperic agent's keystore was installed prior to initial startup of the agent.

Each agent must have its own keystore.

Verify that you have SSL certificates for the vCenter Hyperic server and each vCenter Hyperic agent.

Verfiy that you have a JKS-format keystore for the vCenter Hyperic server on its host, and that you have imported its SSL certificate.

Note the full path to the JKS-format keystore and its password. When you run the vCenter Hyperic installer in -full mode, the installer prompts for this information.
