I installed the VMware View Client for Linux in Ubuntu and whenever I try and connect I recieve:
Untrusted View Connection:
Failed to connect to the View Connection Server. The server provided an invalid certificate.
The certificate authority is invalid or incorrect.
Having access to my esxi 5 server I able to pulled the rui.crt and the rui.key like what was suggested in the documentation:
"NOTE For instructions on distributing a self-signed root certificate that users can install on their Linux client
systems, see the Ubuntu documentation.
View Client uses the PEM-formatted certificates stored in the /etc/ssl/certs directory on the client system.
For instructions on importing a root certificate stored in this location, see the procedure called "Importing a
Certificate into the System-Wide Certificate Authority Database" in the document at
These are the steps that I did to attempt to import the root certificates and etc.
1 - Created a directory under /usr/share/ca-certificates/ , called 192.168.1.8
2 - Added the two certificates, rui.key and rui.crt
3 - Added my paths to /etc/ca-certificates.conf
4 - Update the CA certificates database
then when I reattempted to connect to my esxi server using VMware View Client, I get the same message. I even change under preferences:
Do not verify server identity certificates and then I get a HTTP error 400
