An SSL certificate for your JBoss EAP host server must be added to the vROps truststore to prevent an SSL Handshake Error (see: Troubleshooting the Management Pack (Red Hat JBoss EAP)) during configuration as well as help provide an added level of security.

To add the SSL certificate to the vROps truststore:

  1. Obtain the SSL certificate for your JBoss EAP host 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:


    $VCOPS_BASE/jre/bin/keytool -import -alias <product_alias> -file /tmp/<certfile> -keystore “$VCOPS_DATA_VCOPS/user/conf/ssl/tcserver.truststore” -storepass <truststore_password> -trustcacerts


    %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

    Note: The <truststore_password> is generated by vROps and is located in/storage/vcops/user/conf/ssl/ Copy the password from thessltruststorePassword= field and paste it in the <truststore_password> placeholder.

    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.
