Is there a reason why SSL is only "required" for Update Manager and not  others?

BTW.. I am taking my VCP 55 exam this coming week..... I am hoping I will get it. Have been studying very hard.

Okay, I was mobile at the time of answering....

I've seen this bad question before, I wondered if it was a "real VMware VCP 5.5 question" or Test Site...

because...

Update Manager uses a SSL certificate

Configuring CA signed SSL certificates for vSphere Update Manager in vCenter Server 5.1 and 5.5 (2037581)

Auto Deploy

Configuring CA signed SSL certificates for vSphere Auto Deploy in vSphere 5.x (2073588)

Now

ESXi Dump Collector, SysLog Collector and Auto Deploy are regarded as
the "Optional" vCenter components!

but Update Manager is an optional!

and if you look at Derek's article, you will also see, certificate generations for them ALL!

Good Luck....

I'm going to dig out my VCP manual! tomorrow AM!

I'm personally not a fan of those sites.

A waste of money and questions set by non VMware specialists!

Good Luck...if you need any more help... Just post. EE will see how we can help.
