The Editing Service Provider page contains four tabs: General, Custom Fields, Certificates, and Proxy Config.
The only required text boxes are the Tenant Name and Administrator Name. Enter this information and any of the non-required text box data you want to maintain.
- Click Show Info to display the user name and password the Service Provider uses to log in to the dt-Console. The console is a web portal available on all appliances that you can use to run internal methods and functions, typically for troubleshooting.
- Click Change Password to replace the current password with a new, randomly generated password. The password applies to all appliances for a single Service Provider.
On the Custom Fields tab, enter any site-specific information you want to maintain. These are free-form text boxes with no data validation; the content is entirely up to you.
To enable a custom certificate, you upload three certificate files in Apache format: SSL Certificate, SSL Key, and CA Certificate.
To apply a Service Provider certificate:
- On the General Configuration page, click the Other Configuration link. The Editing Service Provider page displays.
- Click the Certificates tab.
On the Certificates tab, browse for and select the follow three files:
- CA Certificate: The public certificate from a certificate authority that was used to sign the Service Provider certificate. This file has a .pem or .crt extension.
- SSL Certificate: The Service Provider’s public certificate, signed by the CA. This file has a .crt extension, which indicates that it is a certificate file.
- SSL Key: The private key used to decrypt the Service Provider’s SSL certificate. This is needed for responding to certificate requests. This file has a .key file extension.
- Click Submit to upload the files.
To get the SSL Certificate file the Service Provider administrator must submit a certificate sign request to their certificate authority. Their certificate authority provides the administrator with a certificate file (.crt) which can be uploaded. For more information on how to get a signed certificate, contact the certificate authority.
This tab is used to set up vCenter Direct Access.
