Before you configure the integration of vIDM with NSX-T, you must get the certificate thumbprint from the vIDM host.


  1. SSH to the vIDM host or any server that can ping the vIDM host.
  2. Run the following command to get the thumbprint.
    openssl1 s_client -connect <FQDN of vIDM host>:443 < /dev/null 2> /dev/null | openssl x509 -sha256 -fingerprint -noout -in /dev/stdin

    For example:

    openssl1 s_client -connect vidmhost.corp.local:443 < /dev/null 2> /dev/null | openssl x509 -sha256 -fingerprint -noout -in /dev/stdin

    Note that on a server that is not the vIDM host, the command might still be called openssl but its version must be 1.0.1 or later.
