Can't renew bosh-director certificate

Jan-Henrik Christophersen
 

Hello all,

we failed to renew our director and mbus certificate before they expired and wanted to do that now by using the create-env command. I removed the "director_ssl" and "mbus_bootstrap_ssl" sections and used bosh int with the --vars-store flag to regenerate them. I've manually checked that the certificates are valid for another year.
To deploy this change, I ran the bosh create-env command but I am now running into this issue:

Command:
```
bosh create-env bosh-director/bosh.yml
    --state=xxx/state.json
    --vars-store=xxx/credentials.yml
    -o bosh-director/cpi.yml
    -v access_key_id=xxxxxxx
    -v secret_access_key=xxxxxxx
    -v director_name=bosh-director 
    -v director_instance_profile=xxx
    -v internal_cidr=10.118.132.0/24 
    -v internal_dns=10.118.128.2 
    -v internal_gw=10.118.132.1 
    -v internal_ip=10.118.132.9 
    -v subnet_id=subnet-04a2xxx
    -v region=eu-central-1 
    -v az=eu-central-1a 
    -v default_key_name=bosh
    -v default_security_groups=sg-e88axxx
    -v concourse_security_group=sg-679xxx
    -v concourse_elb=elb
    --ca-cert (interpolated ca cert) # tried with and without this parameter
    --var-file private_key=xxxxxxx.pem
```

Can anyone point out what I am doing wrong here? I only have limited experience with bosh and didn't have to regenerate certificates before. The person who originally deployed this is also not around.

Thanks,
Jan
