The certificate and trust store files for the View adapter are in the adapter's work directory. These files are in Java key store format.

The work directory is on the node where the View adapter is installed. On Linux, the path to the work directory is /usr/lib/vmwarevcops/user/plugins/inbound/V4V_adapter3/. On Windows, the path to the work directory is C:\vmware\vcenteroperations\user\plugins\inbound\V4V_adapter3\.
