The system administrator can replace the SSL certificate of the management site service when it expires or to replace a self-signed certificate with one issued by a certificate authority. You secure the management site service on port 5480.

The vRealize Appliance uses lighttpd to run its own management site. When you replace a management site certificate, you must also configure all Management Agents to recognize the new certificate.

If you are running a distributed deployment, you can update Management Agents automatically or manually. If you are running a minimal deployment, you must update the management agent manually.

See Manually Update Management Agents to Recognize a vRealize Appliance Management Site Certificate for more information.
