Install the root or intermediate certificates that should be trusted by the VMware Identity Manager connector. The connector will be able to establish secure connections to servers whose certificate chain includes any of these certificates.

Scenarios in which you need to install trusted root certificates on the connector include the following:

  • If you have set up a load balancer for high availability of Kerberos authentication, install the load balancer's root CA certificate on the connector instances to establish trust between the connectors and the load balancer.


  1. Log in to the connector admin pages at https://connectorFQDN:8443/cfg/login as the admin user.
  2. Click Install SSL Certificates, then select the Trusted CAs tab.
  3. Paste the root or intermediate certificate into the text box.
    Include everything between and including the lines -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE----.
  4. Click Add.
