If you have configured Security Certificate Validation as Manual Acceptance, then you need to accept the new certificate (TLS/SSL X.509) to configure the vIDM or LDAP successfully.

When you configure the vIDM or LDAP in vRealize Network Insight Cloud, and configure the Security Certificate Validation as Manual Acceptance, you see an alert message notification to accept the certificate. You also see the alert message notification whenever the system detects any changes in the security certificates.
Note: Only an Admin user can accept a security certificate. If you do not accept the certificate, the vIDM or LDAP users cannot access vRealize Network Insight Cloud.

You can review and accept the security certificate when you see the security alert message notification. To accept the certificate, do the following:

  • For vIDM, when you see the VMware Identity Manager security certificate update alert message notification, click ACCEPT.
  • For LDAPS, when you see the LDAP Security certificate update alert message notification, click ACCEPT.
  • For LDAPS, If the number of certificates update available is more than two, you see Certificate update available since <date>. Click here to review and accept in the LDAP tab.
    1. Click Click here to review and accept for the LDAPS server you want to review and accept the updated certificate.
    2. Review the certificate, and click ACCEPT.
