If your database uses SSL, you must import the SSL certificate to the Orchestrator configuration interface and activate secure connection between Orchestrator and the database.

Before you begin

  • Configure your database for SSL access. See your database documentation for instructions.

  • Obtain a self-signed server certificate or a certificate that is signed by a Certificate Authority.

  • Explicitly specify the trusted certificate to perform the SSL authorization correctly.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the Orchestrator configuration interface as vmware.
  2. Click Network.
  3. In the right pane, click the SSL Trust Manager tab.
