Note: Different levels of security can be configured in the Management Pack for Citrix ADC. The least secure configuration is to set the SSL Configuration Advanced Setting to No SSL. The next level of security is to set SSL Configuration to No Verify, and the Management Pack will accept all SSL certificates. For the highest level of security, you can set SSL Configuration to Verify, and the Management Pack will have to verify the SSL certificate on your vROps system. See: Creating an Adapter Instance (Citrix ADC).

To add an SSL certificate to the vROps Truststore:

1. Obtain the SSL certificate for your ADC Appliance server from your Internet browser. Export the certificate as an X.509 Certificate (PEM).
2. Copy the certificate to your vROps machine.
3. Use ‘ssh’ to log in to the vROps machine as the root user, then run the following command:

Linux:

$VCOPS_BASE/jre/bin/keytool -import -alias <product_alias> /tmp/<certfile> -keystore “$VCOPS_DATA_VCOPS/user/conf/ssl/tcserver.truststore” -storepass grep ssltruststorePassword /storage/vcops/user/conf/ssl/storePass.properties | sed s/ssltruststorePassword=// -trustcacerts

Windows:

%VCOPS_BASE%\jre\bin\keytool -import -alias <product_alias> C:\path\to\certfile -keystore “%VCOPS_DATA_VCOPS%\user\conf\ssl\tcserver.truststore” -storepass <truststore_password> -trustcacerts

Parameter Descriptions:

• -alias is a unique name for each key that you add (per host)
• certfile is the location where the cert file was saved
4. Run the reboot command to re-start the vROps machine for the changes to take effect.
