OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter Version 5.2 Installation Guide

Generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)


Before registering an OMIVV to a vCenter, ensure that you upload the CSR.

About this task

Generating a new CSR prevents certificates that were created with the previously generated CSR from being uploaded to the appliance. To generate a CSR, do the following:


  1. On the APPLIANCE MANAGEMENT page, click Generate Certificate Signing Request in the HTTPS CERTIFICATES area.
    A message is displayed stating that if a new request is generated, certificates created using the previous CSR can no longer be uploaded to the appliance. To continue with the request, click Continue.
  2. If you continue with the request, in the GENERATE CERTIFICATE SIGNING REQUEST dialog box, enter information about the common name, organization, locality, state, country, and email address. Click Continue.
  3. Click Download, and then save the resulting CSR to an accessible location.
