Installing CA Root Certificate in Trusted Keystore for vCloud Connector (2045007)
The trusted keystore is /usr/java/default/lib/security/cacerts. The default password for this keystore is changeit.
To import the CA root certificate
- Log on to the console of the vCloud Connector Server or vCloud Connector Node as admin.
The default password is vmware.
- If the CA Root certificate is not in the X.509 format, convert it to the X.509 format.
openssl pkcs7 -in <path/../certificate.cer> -print_certs | openssl x509 > <path/../certificate.cer>
Note: If the certificate is already in the X.509 format, you might get an error.
- At the prompt, change directory:
- Import the root certificate:
/usr/java/default/bin/keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias alias -file <location of root .cer file> -keystore cacerts -storepass changeit
Note: Ensure that all root certificates uploaded to the cacerts keystore have a unique alias name.
