Recently I wrote about Updating CA SSL Certificates in vSphere 5.1 which applied to the Windows installable version of the vCenter 5.1 and it's supporting components including SSO. VMware has now also released the instructions to update the CA SSL certificates in the vSphere 5.1 vCenter Virtual Appliance.
While there are a total of 136 steps in the process to update the CA SSL Certificates in the Windows vCenter 5.1 there are only 81 steps to update it in the vSphere 5.1 vCenter Virtual Appliance. But note that these steps do not include update manager. I will include the link below to the KB regarding update manager also.
Here are the KB articles required to update the vSphere 5.1 vCenter Virtual Appliance and Update Manager.
Configuring certificates signed by a Certificate Authority (CA) for vCenter Server Appliance 5.1 - http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2036744
Configuring CA signed SSL certificates for vSphere Update Manager in vCenter 5.1 - http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2037581
It was another great team effort across the globe within VMware to put these instructions together and test them. Hopefully you find this information useful.
