The identity of the endpoint does not match with its SSL certificate.

Problem

After you add an endpoint such as a vCenter Server into vRealize Business for Cloud, you might see the following error:

The certificate presented by the server has issues.

Rectify the certificate and edit the connection to accept the new certificate.

Cause

When you add an endpoint, you might have provided the IP address. The SSL certificate presents the endpoint's host name, instead of the IP address. This identity mismatch results in the certificate issue of the endpoint.

Procedure

  1. Go to the Administration tab.
  2. Select an endpoint. For example, Manage Private Cloud Connections > vCenter Server.
  3. Select the instance and click the edit option.
  4. Enter the host name of the endpoint and save.
