When you add a data source in vRealize Network Insight, all the certificates (HTTPs certificates or SSH public keys) related to that data source are automatically added as a trust on first use. After you add the data source in vRealize Network Insight, every time there is any change in the certificate, the system validates the certificate.
There are two ways you can configure certificate validation: Automatic Acceptance and Manual Acceptance. In Automatic Acceptance, system automatically accepts all the detected certificate changes, and in Manual Acceptance, system stops the data source and shows you an alert message notification to accept the certificate manually. When you accept the certificate, the system starts the data source.
- Go to .
- From Data Source Certificate Validation drop-down menu, select one of the data source validation methods:
- Automatic Acceptance
- Manual Acceptance
- Click Save.
Note: If you change the certificate validation method from Manual Acceptance to Automatic Acceptance, you must accept all the available certificate changes manually before you change the certificate validation method.
If you change the Data Source Certificate Validation from Manual Acceptance to Automatic Acceptance without accepting the pending detected certificate changes, then you have to delete all the data source with pending certificate and add them again to get the insight about those data sources.
