Certificate error adding host to vCenter

snyderkv asked
Last Modified: 2020-03-02
I removed from inventory two ESXi 6.7 hosts that I did a clean rebuild on from ISO. Same one we've been using for all our other sites. Only this time, the vCenter kicks up an error trying to add them. I confirmed DNS, time and domain name are all good to go.

A general system error occurred. SSL Exception: The remote host certificate has has these problems. Unable to get local issuer certificate.

It seems as this would be a vCenter issue as these are clean rebuilds.

Thanks in advance
