As people quickly found out when vSphere 5.1 was released, installation and configuration of vSphere 5.1 SSL certificates was very painful and no accurate VMware documentation existed. Through a lot of work and help from some of my readers, I published a process that was pretty successful but required some workarounds and wasn’t “official”. VMware is now making public a series of KB articles that are much more accurate and usable. I reviewed a draft version, and spotted a few areas that I gave VMware feedback on. You can find the KB articles here.
As I install the vSphere 5.1.0A update, and review all of the KB articles, I will update any of my posts as needed. Most seemed spot on, but they did have a different method for fixing the Web Client and Log Browser SSL issues. So that post will get a re-write once I can test the procedures. I should get everything updated over the weekend.
