If you want to delete an old or expired certificate associated with an adapter, perform the following steps:


  1. In a Web browser, navigate to the vRealize Operations Manager administration interface at https://node-FQDN-or-ip-address/ui.
  2. Log in with the administrator username and password.
  3. In the menu, click Administration, and in the left pane click Management > Certificates.
  4. In the certificate window, select the certificate that has to be removed.
  5. Click the x to remove the certificate.
  6. If the certificate is being used by the adapter, then the following message comes up:

    A certificate can be configured for one or more adapters if it is the same destination system.
  7. If you delete a certificate which is already being used by another adapter, the adapter fails to connect or start. As a workaround, perform the following steps:
    1. On the left pane, click Solutions.
    2. Select the particular adapter and click the Configure button on the toolbar.
    3. Click Test Connection.
    4. A prompt comes up asking the user to import the associated certificate. Click OK.
    5. Restart the adapter from the Solutions page.
