I deployed a brand new base installation of Lenovo XClarity Integrator for VMware vCenter version 5.4.0 (newest available). I was able to deploy and configure the appliance. Even the vCenter registration worked right away with the appropriate account!
However, if I want to import a customized signed server certificate from our internal CA I always get the following error after the upload of the signed CSR:
Failed to upload certificate:[Errno 2] No such file or directory
I tried several times, even after a complete reboot of the appliance. I tried with FQDN, shortname and the option "Generated by LXCI" as CN but I always receive the same error.
--> Could this be a bug in the v5.4.0 ?
CSR can be generated without any issue and can be read by our CA. Has anyone the same issue?

Thank you for your reply. I was finally able to import a custom certificate into LXCI. However, I had to implement some more steps:
- Deploy new v.5.4.0 appliance
- Set up the appliance
- Reboot appliance
- Apply Fix Patch 1 & 2
- Reboot appliance
- Generate CSR, sign CSR and import certificate (Base64 encoded, PEM format)
--> Important: Other than it is described in the documentation, the certificate does not have to have the full certificate path. I received an error with the the full chain. It is enough to just import the certificate without the root certificate from the CA.
