App Volumes Manager uses SSL to communicate with Active Directory, Machine Managers, and App Volumes agents.
Using App Volumes Manager, you can perform a variety of tasks to configure and use SSL certificates. You can replace, import, disable, and manage the SSL certificates used for SSL communication and validation.
You can configure Active Directory to reject connection with App Volumes Manager if SSL certificate validation fails. See Configuring and Using Active Directory.
You can add and upload trusted SSL certificates from the App Volumes Manager console to establish a secure connection to the vCenter Server and the remote SQL server.
You can also replace the default App Volumes Manager certificates that are used for communication with App Volumes agents, disable SSL and SSL certificate validation, and enable an HTTP connection.
