How do I replace an expired certificate that Vmware includes with VirtualCenter with a new one from Vmware?

Greetings -

I am trying to manage Vmware VirtualCenter with System Center Virtual Machine Manager and am noticing that the certificate that Vmware includes with VirtualCenter is expired as of 3/1/2007.  This is also causing a startup warning on the Vmware Infrastructure Client.

How do I replace this certificate with one that is not expired?  I am not going to go purchase my own cert for this.  Is there a place where I can download a new cert or generate one on my own?

I would've thought that upgrading to the latest version of VirtualCenter would have included a new certificate.

Thanks in advance...

As it turns out, this is a known issue when upgrading from an older version of VirtualCenter (2.0.2) to version 2.5 when your certificates are already expired.  The VC 2.5 upgrade process does not update the rui.crt files the way it is supposed to.

My solution was to uninstall VirtualCenter 2.5, remove the .crt files that VC stores under the All Users -> ApplicationData folder, and to simply reinstall VC 2.5.  It generated new certs for me at that point.
