Importing a Verisign SSL cert and VMware VDM

We've just renewed an SSL cert for a VMware Virtual desktop environment and have a question about importing and whether or not we need to import an Intermediate CA Certificate first.

In the reply from Versigin, see below, it says we need to. VDM is not IIS.

IMPORTANT! In order for your SSL Certificate to function properly, you must download and install the VeriSign Intermediate CA Certificate on your Web server. Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 and above automatically installs the Intermediate CA Certificate when you install the SSL Certificate and does not require separate installation.
All other Web servers require you to install the Intermediate CA separately.

In documentation from Vmware, see link below, it doesn't mention an Intermediate CA Certificate


Can anyone who's done this before you let us know how it's done.
