What is the best what to remove the SSL certificate warnings?

I'm configuring Virtual Desktop Manager for users to remotely access their virtual workstations.

There is a small annoyance, in that each time the user goes to login to access their virtual workstation via the Virtual Desktop Manager, they receive the following message:

"The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority."

Is there an easy way to make it so this is no longer displayed?

Do I need to purchase a trusted certificate from Verisign and if so, do I need to purchase a certificate for the the VDI server, ESX servers, and Virtual Center server?

Thanks!

If you used a self signed certifiate issued from an internal Certificate authority, then what you need to do is down load the Certificate Chain from that server and distribute it to all the users that are using the virutal servers, that should fix your problem without having to go buy a cert.

I'm not currently using self signed certificates, and when I researched this option, although it would be free, it seems like there is a lot more complexity to doing it that way, so we will end up buying a certificate from a place like VeriSign.

I'm not sure how many we really need to purchase though.

Do we only need to buy certificates for the front end servers that the users will be directly accessing, which is my guess?

Thanks!

That is correct you will need to buy the certs for the machines that will be directly accessed by the users...
You should also be able to get a free trial certificate to make sure it is what you really want...kind of like a try before you buy!
