  • Create and configure the primary node.
  • Verify that your certificate file meets the requirements for vRealize Operations Manager. See the vRealize Operations Manager vApp Deployment and Configuration Guide or vRealize Operations Manager Installation and Configuration Guide for Linux and Windows.

  2. Log in with the admin user name and password.
  3. At the upper right, click the SSL certificate icon.
  4. In the certificate window, click Install New Certificate.
  5. Click Browse for certificate.
  6. Locate the certificate .pem file, and click Open to load the file in the Certificate Information text box.
