Ansible deployment of SCOM Linux agent and third-party certificate

catremor 1 Reputation point

We have been working on an Ansible play for deploying the SCOM Linux agent and have all the steps completed with the exception of the certificate. Since Ansible cannot do the manual processing of the certificate I am wondering if a third-party certificate can be used instead? If so, what is the process for doing this? We would be using our internal MS certificate authority to retrieve the certificate in which we should be able to add the command to the Ansible play.
