HTTPS Strict Transport Security errorIf you get the dreaded HTTPS Strict Transport Security error when going to vCenter and you CAN NOT get the certificate in order to install it. Because if you get the error, you don't get the screen that let's you download it. Catch-22.
Where it livesHere is where it lives:
Just putty or Secure CRT (MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE) into the vCenter appliance, cd to the directory and cat the files. Then copy them, paste them to a notepad++file and save them with a .crt extension.
Import into Certificate ManagerClick start, and type certificate manager, run it.
The ca.crt file you should import and store in local computer in the trusted root certification authorities folder. The Machine-ssl.crt file just use local machine and let it figure it out.
DONE!No more red banner, no more HSTS error.
Now I'm leaving that took about 3 hours to figure out.
