NOTE: This issue does not cover the procedure for replacing Virtual Storage Console's self signed certificate with a CA signed certificate.  The KB that walks through that procedure can be found here.


After replacing Virtual Storage Console's (VSC) self signed certificate with a CA (Certificate Authority) signed certificate, some functionality such as VSC's storage mapping's pane no longer works.  In the logs, errors similar to the following are seen:
