The setup warns about the vCenter Invalid Certificate Action not being set to ignore.


The vCenter PowerShell Command Line Interface checks the validity of the server certificate upon connecting to the vCenter/ESX server. If the InvalidCerticateAction ist not set to ignore and the certificate is not valid, the connector will not connect.

The setting can be checked by issuing:


The InvalidCertificateAction has to be set for "AllUsers" so the service is also covered by the setting.


In case the action is NOT set to ignore you can issue the following command (start PowerShell as Administrator) to change the setting.

 Set-PowerCLIConfiguration -InvalidCertificateAction Ignore -Scope AllUsers
