VMware vRops Azure error

So we’ve been getting a very annoying error when trying to monitor Azure with vrops:

“Unable to establish a valid connection to the target system. javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: General SSLEngine problem”

 

vrops error

I found this article that states how to fix it, which gave me a clue but didnt actually fix the problem:

https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/50122228

Basically the certs for Azure had expired so it couldn’t check the status.

The fix for me was to download all the new Azure Certs:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/security/fundamentals/tls-certificate-changes

azure certs

Convert them to pem files:

https://cheapsslsecurity.com/p/convert-a-certificate-to-pem-crt-to-pem-cer-to-pem-der-to-pem/

Now upload the pem files to vrops:

/usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/microsoftazure_adapter3/conf/certs/

 

Now ssh to vrops and get the keystore password:

cd /storage/vcops/user/conf/ssl/

keytool -list -keystore tcserver.truststore

and finally import your pem files:

cd /storage/vcops/user/conf/ssl/
keytool -import -file /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/microsoftazure_adapter3/conf/certs/Microsoft_RSA_Root_Certificate_Authority_2017.pem -alias azure1 -keystore tcserver.truststore
keytool -import -file /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/microsoftazure_adapter3/conf/certs/Microsoft_ECC_Root_Certificate_Authority_2017.pem -alias azure2 -keystore tcserver.truststore
keytool -import -file /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/microsoftazure_adapter3/conf/certs/D-TRUST_Root_Class_3_CA_2_2009.pem -alias azure3 -keystore tcserver.truststore
keytool -import -file /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/microsoftazure_adapter3/conf/certs/BaltimoreCyberTrustRoot.pem -alias azure4 -keystore tcserver.truststore
keytool -import -file /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/microsoftazure_adapter3/conf/certs/DigiCertGlobalRootCA.pem -alias azure5 -keystore tcserver.truststore
keytool -import -file /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/microsoftazure_adapter3/conf/certs/DigiCertGlobalRootG2.pem -alias azure6 -keystore tcserver.truststore
