Updated: April 29, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

Get-SCCertificate

Gets a security certificate object from a VMware vCenter Server, from a VMware ESX host, or from a Citrix XenServer host.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ByLocalFilename
Get-SCCertificate [-Filename] <String> [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ByRemoteComputer
Get-SCCertificate [-ComputerName] <String> [-TCPPort <UInt32> ] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-SCCertificate cmdlet gets a security certificate object from a vCenter Server, from an ESX host, or from a XenServer host. You can use this cmdlet to import a non-trusted certificate into Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) so that you can use the certificate with the Add-SCVirtualizationManager cmdlet, the Set-SCVirtualizationManager cmdlet, the Add-SCVMHost cmdlet or the Set-SCVMHost cmdlet.

The certificate is required in order to establish an SSL connection between the VMM server and the vCenter Server, ESX host, or XenServer host.

Parameters

-ComputerName<String>

Specifies the name of a computer that VMM can uniquely identify on your network. Valid formats are:

-- FQDN
-- IPv4 or IPv6 address
-- NetBIOS name

NOTE: See the examples for a specific cmdlet to determine how that cmdlet specifies the computer name.

Examples

Example 1: Retrieve the security certificate for the specified VMware vCenter Server

This command gets the security certificate object for the vCenter Server server named vCenterServer01 located in the Contoso.com domain, and displays the security certificate information.


PS C:\> Get-SCCertificate -Computername "vCenterServer01.Contoso.com"

Example 2: Retrieve the security certificate for a specified VMware ESX host

The first command gets the security certificate object from the ESX host named ESXHost01, and then stores the object in the $ESXCert variable.

The second command passes the contents of $ESXCert to the Get-Member cmdlet, which displays the .NET type and a list of methods and properties for the certificate object.


PS C:\> $ESXCert = Get-SCCertificate -ComputerName "ESXHost01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> $ESXCert | Get-Member

Example 3: Retrieve the security certificate for the specified Citrix XenServer host

This command gets the security certificate object for the XenServer named XenServer01 located in the Contoso.com domain, and displays the security certificate information.


PS C:\> Get-SCCertificate -Computername "XenServer01.Contoso.com"
