If you deploy the connector with the self-signed SSL certificate that is generated by default when the connector is installed, install the connector's self-signed root CA certificate on any clients that access the connector. You can download the root CA certificate from the VMware Identity Manager administration console.


  1. Log in to the VMware Identity Manager connector admin pages at https://connectorFQDN:8443/cfg/login as the admin user.
  2. Click Install SSL Certificates.
  3. In the Server Certificate tab, click the link in the Appliance Self-Signed Root CA Certificates field.
    The certificates are displayed.
  4. Copy the entire text, including the lines -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE-----.
