Host name does not match the IP address

After you add an endpoint such as a Center Server into Realize Business for Cloud, you see this error:
  • The certificate presented by the server has issues.
  • Rectify the certificate and edit the connection to accept the new certificate.


VMware vRealize Business for Cloud Standard 7.x


When adding an endpoint, you might have provided the IP address. The SSL certificate presents the endpoint's host name, instead of the IP address. This identity mismatch results in the certificate issue of the endpoint.


To resolve this issue:

  1. Go to the Administration tab.
  2. Select an endpoint. For example, Manage Private Cloud Connections > vCenter Server.
  3. Select the instance and click Edit.
  4. Enter the host name of the endpoint and save.
