Update VMware View Composer SSL Certs with your own Windows Domain CA Certificates using PowerShell

Next in the series of replacing vSphere related SSL scripts is the VMware View Composer script. This one is rather simple, and uses certutil and certreq to generate the certificates, as opposed to OpenSSL.

It also generates a batch script which calls SviConfig.exe. You just gotta put in a few variables, run the script and choose the new cert (I couldn’t automate that part).
