After migrating from 5.5 Windows to 6.5 Appliance you get Certificate error in Profile-Driven Storage.

This is not used after 6.0.

You will see a warning in VirtualCeneter that you have a certificate warning.

And if you go in to service you have a serivice that has a yellow warning.

Markering_425

Because this is not used you can delete this one.

ssh to vcenter

Command> shell
Shell access is granted to root

To verify, look in the logfile

less /var/log/vmware/vmware-sps/sps.log

look for something like this:

Markering_426

Then

cd /usr/lib/vmware-vmafd/bin/

./vecs-cli entry list  –store sms
