COT – Common OVF-Tool – Import of VCenter HTTPS Certificate

Background: Python-Requests wants to verify https-certificates, which makes sense to me.
– but my VCenter uses a self-signed Certificate

$ python
Python 2.7.15rc1 (default, Apr 15 2018, 21:51:34)
[GCC 7.3.0] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import requests
>>> requests.get("https://<vcenter-ip>")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/requests/api.py", line 72, in get
    return request('get', url, params=params, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/requests/api.py", line 58, in request
    return session.request(method=method, url=url, **kwargs)

    resp = self.send(prep, **send_kwargs)

    r = adapter.send(request, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/requests/adapters.py", line 506, in send
    raise SSLError(e, request=request)
requests.exceptions.SSLError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='192.168.2.13', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: / (Caused by SSLError(SSLError(1, u'[SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:726)'),))

Don’t think about ignoring certificate errors ūüėČ

Prerequisites

sudo apt-get install unzip

Download the certificate from the VCenter:

wget --no-check-certificate https://<vcenter-ip>/certs/download
mv download download.zip
unzip download.zip

Install the certificate:

cd certs
$ ls -l
total 8
-rw-r--r-- 1 administrator administrator 1294 Apr 29  2016 d2f59c0d.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 administrator administrator  702 Oct 15 14:36 d2f59c0d.r0

$ export REQUESTS_CA_BUNDLE=d2f59c0d.0

Now Python.requests validates the vCenter:

$ python
Python 2.7.15rc1 (default, Apr 15 2018, 21:51:34)
[GCC 7.3.0] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import requests
>>> requests.get("https://<vcenter-ip>")
<Response [200]>

Add the Export to ~/.bashrc

sudo vi ~/.bashrc

at the end of the file

export REQUESTS_CA_BUNDLE=~/certs/d2f59c0d.0
