When you install a management agent, you must validate the fingerprint of the SSL certificate for the Management Site service.

You can obtain the fingerprint at the command prompt on the vRealize Automation appliance.


  1. Log in to the vRealize Automation appliance console as root.
  2. Enter the following command:
    openssl x509 -in /opt/vmware/etc/lighttpd/server.pem -fingerprint -noout -sha1

    The SHA1 fingerprint appears. For example:

    SHA1 Fingerprint=E4:F0:37:9A:32:52:FA:7D:2E:91:BD:12:7A:2F:A3:75:F8:A1:7B:C4  
  3. Copy the fingerprint UID. For validation, you might need to remove the colons.

What to do next

Keep the fingerprint you copied for use with the Management Agent installer.
