Issue Adding Host to Project in VIC

Hello everyone,

I’ll try to keep it brief and to the point. I recently purchased a VMUG license and installed a setup on my server at home for testing purposes.

I have vCenter installed along with a single ESXi host, deployed the VIC appliance and a VCH host.

The later I deployed without Client Certificate (homelab environment).

Now when I log in to the vic managment portal and try to add the vch to the default-project I get a ‘connection timeout’ error and the following line in the log:

2019/12/28 14:17:47 http: TLS handshake error from notebookIP:59756: remote error: tls: unknown certificate 2019/12/28 14:17:47 http: TLS handshake error from notebookIP:59757: remote error: tls: unknown certificate Dec 28 2019 14:17:47.963Z INFO User with a valid auth cookie at notebookIP is authenticated.

I filled out the form according to this guide:


if I do ‘docker -H vchIP:2376 –tls info’ I get the expected result

I do not get the prompt to accept the certificate as mentioned in the guide.

Any help greatly appreciated, I’m sure it’s probably something small I have overlooked

EDIT: I can run containers from commandline and they show up in vCenter with working Container network assigned, launched one for ubuntu but it shut’s down imediatelly after start. httpd keeps running.
