Hi Lucinda,

I also used the (rhev-hypervisor6-6.5-20140725.0.el6ev.noarch), and there is no 'Retrieve Certificate' option at all. I have provide you a screen shot, please check that.

My apologies. I have just completed another install to test this, and my screen now provides the same options as in your screen shot. I think the 'Retrieve Certificate' option still appeared in my last install because it was an upgrade, rather than a clean install (and, as such, the 'Management Server' field was pre-filled).

I have also found the bug that discusses removing the button: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1081042

I will now go ahead and update the documentation to reflect this change.

Updated the topic 'Configuring Hypervisor Management Server' [7537]:

Removed 'Retrieve Certificate' step and added a step about the 'oVirt Engine Fingerprint' screen, where users will now check and accept the fingerprint retrieved from the Manager. The order of the steps was also shuffled, as the user needs to select <Save & Register> to make the hypervisor retrieve the fingerprint, rather than at the very end of the procedure.

What Changed
The following topic was updated to remove the 'Retrieve Certificate' step and replace it with a step about the 'oVirt Engine Fingerprint' screen:

Configuring Hypervisor Management Server [7537-699914]

Updated Revision History [34615-700218]


Moving to ON_QA.

Peer reviewed.

Retrieve Certificate step is gone; oVirt Engine Fingerprint step is there.
