The VMware Product team has been notifying customers about an issue that could potentially impact your vROPs instance, causing the tool to become inoperable. See the notice and summary below. The key take away here is the initial install date. Please reference VMware KB 71018 for more information and steps to remediate.
- All vROPs instance 6.0 and newer are impacted
- There is no fix for versions 6.0 – 6.2. You must upgrade to 6.3 or higher.
- The internal Gemfire SSL cert expires 5 years after the initial install of vROPs. The first of these will start happening November 19th.
- When the cert expires, you cannot view any data, though collections will continue to run.
- Upgrades to vROPs have no impact on the cert, so the initial expiration date will still apply, even if you’ve upgraded vROPs several times since installation.
