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

If the VMware Identity Manager server is configured behind a load balancer and SSL is terminated on the load balancer, install the load balancer's root certificate.


  1. In the VMware Identity Manager console, click the Appliance Settings tab.
  2. Click Manage Configuration and enter the admin user password.
  3. Click Install SSL Certificates, then select the Trusted CAs tab.
  4. Paste the root or intermediate certificate into the text box.
    Include everything between and including the lines -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE----.
  5. Click Add.
