Configuring certificates for on-premise appliances

Last Updated:

When configuring a Meeting Connector or Virtual Room Connector (VRC) appliance, admins can upload and use their own TLS certificates, issued by a trusted certificate authority (CA), for their appliances. However, these must be manually rotated prior to expiration. However, for Meeting Connector, admins can also configure the appliance to use certificates and domains managed and updated by Zoom automatically through Zoom's Auto PKI feature.

This article covers:

Prerequisites for configuring on-prem certificates and domains

  • A running Meeting Connector or Virtual Room Connector
  • Admin access to the server web interface
  • Meeting Connector, version 4.8.20220526.113
  • Virtual Room Connector, version 4.4.7505.20220310
