SSL verification failure due to a host "host name" thumbprint mismatch
Posted on 2012-03-13
I am new to using ESXi and VSphere. I have setup my ESXi server everything seems to be working fine. I installed VSphere on an XP system and it properly connects and everything works fine.
I allocated resource pools and set up a user to access only one VM. This seems to work fine from the XP machine with VSPhere.
I then Installed VSphere on another system (Windows 7, 32bit) and Went through the same process as the other XP system when certificate info poped up i.e. check marked install the certificate and clicked ignore, as per instructions from youTube tutorial.
The user can login to Vsphere properly and it shows the vm they are allowed to use, and they can power it up, except on this machine when they try and open the concole I get the error "SSLverification failure due to a host "[host name]" thumbprint mistmatch.
Any info on how to deal with this would be greatly appreciated. I have tried uninstalling CSphere and reinstalling it on the system to no avail. Same problem exists if I login as "root" to the ESXi server.
VSPhere version is 5.0.0 - 455964
ESXi 5.0 version - build 469512
The VM trying to be accessed is Windows 7 (64bit)

P.S. As I am new to dealing with ESXi I am afraid I will need the "ESXi for Dummies" type of instructions to implement any fix. Thanks again!
