Q: How can I replace the self-signed certificates a Hyper-V host uses for server authentication when connecting to one of its virtual machines (VMs) using the Virtual Machine Connection tool?
A: You might, for example, want to use a server authentication certificate that's generated by your enterprise Certification Authority (CA) instead of the self-signed Hyper-V certificates. To do this, you would need to follow these steps:
- Disable the automatic generation of self-signed certificates on the Hyper-V host.
- Delete the existing self-signed certificates.
- Request a new server authentication certificate for your Hyper-V host from your enterprise CA.
- Install and configure this new certificate on your Hyper-V host.
This process is explained in greater detail in the Microsoft article "Configuring Certificates for Virtual Machine Connection."
