    You blog post help me get my issues resolved. Happened after an upgrade to vCenter 6.7 … which I discovered after was not yet supported by Veeam. My fault for not performing my due filigence but it was an unscheduled upgrade in order to resolve another issue.

    I restored my vCenter server from Veeam to a host and corrected all related issues there. Then I tried my backups and ran into the invalid remote certificate issue (strangely with only one of my three hosts). The rescan did not work, however instead of accessing the database I removed the host from the backup infrastructure inventory and then added it again (I did get the untrusted certificate but clicking connect anyway worked).

    Thanks again for your post, it got me to my solution quickly and easily.

    Well Done! thank you for documenting this so effectively. Veeam support was no help and referred me to our certificate authority…what a waste of support. A little Googling and your fix resolved our issues at 3 sites in less than 5 minutes. THANK YOU.

    Great solution. I fixed the issue in five minutes! I found I did not have to disable the Veeam Backup service because it kicked me out when I did. Thanks very much!

    Import-Module Veeam.Backup.PowerShell
    $credentials = (Get-VBRCredentials -Name “credAccountName”)
    $VBRServers = Get-VBRServer -Type “ESXi”
    foreach ($VBRServer in $VBRServers) {Set-VBRESXi -Server $VBRServer -Credentials $credentials}
