View 5.1: SSL Certificates

VMware took security to a whole new level in VMware View 5.1 Certificates are here and they are configured in a completely different way than previous versions of View. Have fun!

All connection, security, transfer, composer, and vCenter servers must have SSL certs signed by a Certificate Authority (CA) or you will receive warnings about untrusted connections. Please pay close attention to the VMware View 5.1 Installation and Administration guides.

Being a small IT shop, I have little experience with certificates. After a lot of trial, error, reading, and a support call to VMware, I finally figured out how to do it. I recorded a brief video capturing part of the process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCWkZj1EgBI
