Wouldn’t you know it!? A vCenter certificate got changed out and now your hypervisor connector is showing it no worky. Come to find out you missed the email memo that the certificate was getting changed. Or you might’ve been busy and didn’t think too much of it. Well, now you have to get it fixed! What if there was a way to get that information quickly and easily so that you just had to do some copy / paste magic to resolve it? Well…. There is! This handy dandy little script will get those pesky thumbprints and kick them out as a csv so you can use them to update your connector in the XenDesktop database.

# A script to check SSL thumbprints on your Citrix hypervisor connections. This will get all of the thumbprints of your connectors and will get the SSL thumbprints of your vCenters if you happen to have more than one.
# This is for running on in-premise Citrix farm (7.x) on a Delivery Controller with 10.1.0 VMware.PowerCLI module and the Citrix SDK installed with VMware ESXi 7.0U1 or later. This also is ran in ISE. Get-SSLThumbprint function is from https://gist.github.com/lamw/988e4599c0f88d9fc25c9f2af8b72c92
# with the return $SSL_THUMBPRINT -replace '(..(?!$))','$1' changed from ending in '$1:' The instructions for changing the SSL thumbprint can be found at https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX224551.
