If your DB2 database system is set up to use SSL, you must add the DB2 SSL certificate prior to your adapter configuration.


  1. Copy certificate to the vROps host.
  2. Log in to vROps host as ‘root’.

    ] cd /usr/java/default

    ] bin/keytool -import -keystore lib/security/cacerts -file /path/to/mydb2sslserver.arm

  3. Create password when prompted (must be at least 6 characters).
  4. Type 'yes' when asked to trust this certificate.

    ] service vmware-vcops restart collector
