An Agent connects to the following third party systems:
These systems may require TLS-secured connections. In such cases, you may require that VMware Data Services Manager access the systems using trusted certificates. VMware Data Services Manager automatically copies any Provider certificates to an Agent when the Agent is onboarded. If you add new certificates to the Provider after deployment, you must manually copy these to each Agent VM. You must also manually copy a certificate specific to an Agent to the Agent VM.
Certificate files are stored in the following file system locations on the Agent VM:
|Description||File System Location|
|Trusted Certificates .pem||/opt/vmware/tdm-tenant/cert/agent-trusted-certs.pem|
VMware Data Services Manager adds the file name prefix
agent-trusted-cert-<number>- to the
<original-cert-filename>.pem of each trusted certificate, and individually copies each cert to the
/etc/ssl/certs directory on the Agent VM.
You must use the VMware Data Services Manager API to update the certificates on the Agent VM:
Retrieve the existing trusted certificates:
A successful response includes a file named
agent-trusted-certs.pem that contains the currently trusted certificates.
Add the new trusted certificates to the returned file.
Update the certificates on the Agent VM:
Deleting the trusted certificates on an Agent VM is a manual process. You must:
sshinto the Agent VM.
