Updating vSphere 5.x CA Signed Certificates

Duncan Epping and I were both asked by Simon Mijolovic a colleague here at VMware to help promote some new useful KB articles.  Since the release of vSphere 5.0 and 5.1 Simon has been working with many others on documenting the processes to update and use proper signed CA certificates within your vSphere environment.  I think many folks will find these useful for sure in their production environments.  Thanks Simon!

  1. If I setup a SLL cert for vSphere 5.0, do I have to redo it when I upgrade to vSphere 5.1? Would I be better off upgrading to vSphere 5.1 and then implement the CA signed SSL cert?
