You can use third-party applications to upload certificates and key. Applications that support HTTPS PUT operations work with the HTTPS interface that is included with ESXi.
- In your upload application, open the file.
- Publish the file to one of these locations.
The location /host/ssl_cert and host/ssl_key link to the certificate files in /etc/vmware/ssl.
- In the Direct Console User Interface (DCUI), use the Restart Management Agents operation to initiate the settings.
