An End Point Operations Management agent client certificate might expire and need to be replaced. For example, you might replace a certificate that you suspected was corrupt or compromised.


Verify that you have sufficient privileges to deploy an End Point Operations Management agent. You must have vRealize Operations Manager user credentials that include a role that allows you to install End Point Operations Management agents. See Roles and Privileges in vRealize Operations Manager.


  • Start the registration process by running the setup command that is appropriate for the operating system on which the agent is running.
    Operating System Run Command
    Linux setup
    Windows ep-agent.bat setup


The agent installer runs the setup, requests a new certificate from the server, and imports the new certificate to the keystore.
