Re: After vSphere 6.0 upgrade - remote certificate is invalid

Thank you for this post, Craig. I have 3 vCenter servers and a PSC, and have just created a new cert for the VMCA as an intermediate CA using the Microsoft Root CA for our Forest. Then the backups blew up. The procedure you wrote up fixed it!

we have PKI issued certificates and the windows servers where B&R runs trust the certificate issued to vcenter.
is there any to add the root CAs to Veeam certificate store or something?
Same here. I replaced my fully-trusted cert with another fully-trusted cert and Veeam choked on it. Only fixed it by inadvertently clicking through the properties dialog before I found this thread. No warnings or prompts in there related to trust or certificate. Sigh. :roll:

I suspect Veeam saves a copy of vCenter's cert any any time it even changes Veeam will throw a fit, regardless of validity. Stupid.
