When installing various VMware products that link into vCenter (vShield, vCloud Connector, vChargeback, I could go on..), you often have minimal control over what URL is actually used to browse to the plugin and you usually can’t change it later on. This can screw up your SSL certificate plans.

After a little digging, I found these tables in the SQL database:

– VPX_EXT_CLIENT
– VPX_EXT_SERVER

Both have a field called ‘URL’ which has the URL (doh) to the plugin.

Two things; this is not supported by VMware and could break something. I hasn’t on my setup, but it might on yours. Backups are your friend.

You need to stop the vCenter service before you edit the value and start it back up after you’re done.
