Remove-CustomCertificates Command | Vmware PowerCLI Reference


Remove a set of custom host certificates from Autodeploy. The certificate entries will be deleted from the database and the certificate files will be removed from the filestore. Hosts that have already booted up with a custom certificate need to be rebooted to receive a new certificate generated using the current certificate mode. At least one of CertIds or HostIds must be given. You must have the "AutoDeploy.Rule.Delete" privilege on the root folder of vCenter Server to use this cmdlet.
