I have a self-signed CA (root certificate) I use in our LAN to sign SSL/TLS certificates for other things such as pfSense itself, our HP iLO interfaces, and so on. Everything works fine here and we decided it was time to add the vcenter web interface to the mix. The CA itself and certs are managed by a pfSense server.
I generated a CSR with certificate manager, processed it on pfSense, and brought the generated cert along with the CA over to vCenter and ran the certificate manager again to import the CA, cert, and key whereupon I ran into the "Replacing the Machine SSL Certificate or Solution User Certificates with Custom CA Certificates fails at 0%" issue described here:
Following the instructions there to try to import the CA (there is no chain, so I am just trying to import this single self-signed CA) fails with the following errors:
dir-cli failed. Error 11: Possible errors: LDAP error: Administrative limit exceeded Win Error: An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.
The host OS for vCenter is Windows 2008 R2 Standard, 64bit. I would appreciate any advice in getting this resolved.
