Working with certificates on vSphere has gotten significantly better as each version of vSphere has been released to the public. As VMware transitions to having the vSphere HTML5 Client be the default client and now the Flash-based version considered deprecated as of version 6.7, not all functionality has been carried over to the new client. Sometimes you still need to use the old Flash-based client to work with certificates to make your life easier.
