If you select an LDAP identity source, and you decide to use LDAPS, you can upload an SSL certificate for the LDAP traffic. SSL certificates expire after a predefined lifespan. Knowing when a certificate expires lets you replace or renew the certificate before the expiration date.

About this task

You see certificate expiration information only if you use an Active Directory LDAP Server or OpenLDAP Server and specify an ldaps:// URL for the server. The Identity Sources TrustStore tab remains empty for other types of identity sources or for ldap:// traffic.

Procedure

  1. From a Web browser, connect to the vSphere Web Client or the Platform Services Controller.
