Now that Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) certificates expire after 13 months, how do I keep them current?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • RHV certificates now follow the new standard 398 day lifetime, instead of five years in earlier RHV versions.
  • This means customers must renew certificates roughly once per year.


  • Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) 4.4 and newer
