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, deactviate, 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, deactivate SSL and SSL certificate validation, and enable an HTTP connection.
