The generation process for each is very similar, and really could be simplified if VMware were to create a script to automate the generation of certificate requests.Without a script to help automate the process of generating the certificate requests, the chances of an inconsistency causing errors being made increase greatly.Only one time, for one certificate, does their whitepaper let you know that you must use their default password of .There are six services that are used as part of v Center/ESXi v5.1, and each one needs its own certificate.There are many other ways in which the document is inconsistent with itself: If you have done everything correctly except you have changed one of the default passwords without updating the appropriate .properties and/or files, you can start this service, and it will stop within 30 seconds.
A grep search reveals at least 7 and .properties files that need to get updated, and again you’re working against the advice of the knowledgebase article above.
When the reboot is complete, you'll see for yourself that you now have the latest ESXi, Build 3620759, as pictured above.
Now you have more spare time to read more Tinker Try articles!
It's just a start, marking the start of an Adobe Flash-free future, and a way to slickly manage even the free Hypervisor found in many home labs. Worry not though, since this article has you covered. Basically you paste two commands, wait for the automated download and patch process, then finish up with a host reboot.
If you don't have a commercial VMware license, and instead are using a trial, free, or EVALExperience ESXi 6.0 or ESXi 6.0 Update 1/1a/1b, you won't be able to easily download the 6.0 Update 2 ISO directly. FYI, you are supposed to update your v Center Server Appliance (VCSA) before you update your ESXi hosts, for the reasons VMware explains here, and William Lam here.
