To work around this issue, reduce the maximum backup size and the maximum backup index in the log4j.properties file. Note: In external Platform Service Controller (PSC) environments, log in to the Platform Service Controller instead to make the suggested changes.

Trying something different…the VMware software-defined datacenter story in a whiteboard. The whiteboard walks you through the evolution of datacenters…from basic virtualization (vSphere) to an optimized, application-centric, ultra efficient, highly automated and governed SDDC. Enjoy!
Thanks for taking the time to read my previous blog post―Certificates for Dummies―where I walked through the process of enabling PSC as a VMware Certificate Authority (VMCA). In this blog post I will demonstrate the process for replacing vCenter Server Certificates with those issued by VMCA.
