vRA 7 / vRO 7 REST error (java.security.cert.CertificateException)
Whilst I was with a customer recently, I hit an SSL related issue whilst trying to put together a vRO workflow to orchestrate the creation of a load-balancer configuration on a Citrix Netscaler VPX. Adding the REST host(s) to vRO was accomplished without any issue, but when I came
Changing vRA ExternalWfStubs Timeouts
I saw a question on Twitter this morning that I thought warranted a quick post: [/content/images/wordpress/2015/11/201511324_111120-CapturFiles.png]The default timeout for the various workflow stubs is 30 minutes, but they can be changed. As always, take backup copies and be careful! The six stubs
