MY environment is vCenter 5.0 and two 5.5 hosts.  The certificate on my vCenter is expired and my Citrix XenDesktop controller will no longer let me spin up VMs.  

I need to update the certs on my vCenter and need guidance on how to do it.  I have found this article:

but holy cow, that's a HUGE for a vCenter noobie!

Can someone give me some guidance?

Thanks

Cliff
