Quick post today! While deploying a vRealize Log Insight (vRLI) cluster with a VIP using vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager 8.1, you receive this error: Error Code: LCMVRLICONFIG40091 Error occured while configuring vRLI Integrated Load balancer. {"errorMessage":"Specified IP address is not available. It is already held by another host in the network","errorCode":"LOAD_BALANCER_ERROR","errorDetails":{"errorCode":"com.vmware.loginsight.api.errors.loadbalancer.ip_address_unavailable"}} This is clearly due to an issue with the VIP that has been configured. Check both forward and reverse DNS records of course.

Following along the theme of one of my previous posts on vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager (vRSLCM) and its REST API, here’s another on replacing the password for a vCenter Server in a vRSLCM “Datacenter”. Similar to my previous post, we’ll be doing this in the Swagger UI as the ability to replace the password is not available in the standard vRSLCM UI (v8.1). The APIs used in this post are private and, as such, not supported by VMware.

I don’t like doing things manually. My previous post showing how to replace vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager certificates using the GUI is straight forward, but it’s far too manual. I’m going to show you how to replace the certificate using the vRSLCM 8.1 API(which you can wrap in a script). You can use any tool to interface with the API. I stick to Postman, curl, or if the application provides it, a Swagger UI.

This post covers the process of replacing a self-signed SSL certificate running on a vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager (vRSLCM) 8.1 appliance. I’ll be using the UI to show you how to do it. Pre-requisites 1) Make sure you have a defined a certificate template as per https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2112009 1) Confirm your user account has the correct privileges to request certificates using Microsoft CA Web Server enrollment. At the least, find someone that can submit and approve it for you.
