vCenter Server warns you when a certificate assigned to a storage provider is about to expire. You can refresh the certificate to continue using the provider.

If you fail to refresh the certificate before it expires, vCenter Server discontinues using the provider.


  1. Browse to vCenter Server in the vSphere Web Client navigator.
  2. Click the Configure tab, and click Storage Providers.
  3. From the list, select the storage provider and click the Refresh the certificate () icon.
