After certificates are updated on the IaaS servers, the system administrator updates the IaaS component registry to reestablish trusted communications between the virtual appliances and IaaS components. In a distributed environment, this process is repeated for each IaaS server where you updated certificates.

As part of updating the IaaS certificate, you must re-register the certificate with the vCloud Automation Center. You can use the hostname or IP address of the IaaS machines in the following commands. If you are using a load balancer, supply the host name of the load balancer instead. Note that URL paths are case-sensitive.

If you encounter errors, see the troubleshooting section of Installation and Configuration.

1

Navigate to the Cafe directory on the IaaS machine that has an updated certificate.

C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC\Server\Model Manager Data\Cafe

2

Register the endpoint address for the UI using a command of this form:

Vcac-Config.exe RegisterEndpoint --EndpointAddress
https://<IaaS UI server hostname> or <lbhostname>/
<IaaS UI application path> --Endpoint ui -v 

For example: Vcac-Config.exe RegisterEndpoint --EndpointAddress https://192.168.1.1/vcac/ --Endpoint ui -v

3

Register the endpoint address for the Model Manager Web server using a command of this form:

Vcac-Config.exe RegisterEndpoint --EndpointAddress 
https://<Model Manager Web server hostname> or <lbhostname>/
<Model Manager Web application path> --Endpoint repo -v

For example:

Vcac-Config.exe RegisterEndpoint --EndpointAddress https://192.168.1.1/Repository --Endpoint repo -v

4

Register the endpoint address for the WAPI server using a command of this form:

Vcac-Config.exe RegisterEndpoint --EndpointAddress 
https://<IaaS WAPI server hostname> or <lbhostname>/
<IaaS WAPI application path>/ --Endpoint wapi -v

For example:

Vcac-Config.exe RegisterEndpoint --EndpointAddress https://192.168.1.1/WAPI --Endpoint wapi -v

5

Register the address for the status endpoint using a command of this form:

Vcac-Config.exe RegisterEndpoint --EndpointAddress
https://<IaaS WAPI server hostname> or <lbhostname>/
<IaaS WAPI application path>/api/status --Endpoint status -v

For example:

Vcac-Config.exe RegisterEndpoint --EndpointAddress https://192.168.1.1/WAPI/api/status --Endpoint status -v

6

Restart each vCloud Automation Center server by using the following command:

service vcac-server restart

Wait approximately 15 minutes for the services to restart.
