If you try to manually replace the certificate on the vCenter Server, vRealize Infrastructure Navigator cannot load the new certificate thumbprint.

If you delete the /opt/vmware/etc/vami/ovfEnv.xml file, the new file created at restart contains the old certificate's thumbprint.


Select the vRealize Infrastructure Navigator virtual machine and verify that it is powered off.


Right-click the selected virtual machine and select Edit Settings.


Select the vServices tab.


Right-click vCenter Extension vService Dependency and click Edit.


Select No Provider from the Provider drop-down menu.


Click OK and click OK again.

Repeat Step 2 through Step 6, selecting vCenter Extension vService from the Provider drop-down menu in Step 5. When you power on the virtual machine next time, its OVF environment is updated with the new vCenter certificate thumbprint.
