Is there a global SSL Trust Store for IBM WebSphere Application Server 7, that applies to all defined nodes? If so, where would this reside, or how could I find it?

Yes if you using default ssl configuration then always it will use celldefaulttruststore

celldefaulttruststsore is common for all nodes.

for example location: /usr/websphere/appserver/profiles/dmgr/config/cell/cellname

CellDefaultTrustStore truststore as the specified server truststore and common truststore for a cell, all of the signers for that cell are downloaded to the specified client truststore, which is typically ClientDefaultTrustStore.

Thanks for your reply. Is there a trust store that applies across all cells? Something that stores common CA certificates for default trust?

Nope by default Websphere is design to use one common truststore ( celldefaulttruststsore ) per CELL

So just to say it another way, there is nothing within WebSphere that trusts common CA's like VeriSign, Equifax, etc?

In WAS 7.0 it has internal CA
it contains websphere root certificate located under singer certificate of celldefaulttruststsore

 root certificate authority (CA) certificate is used to sign other certificates for WebSphere Application Server. By default, during profile management, the default root keying (NodeDefaultRootStore or DmgrDefaultRootStore for a deployment manager), and the root CA certificate, are automatically configured.

If you want to add additional CA cerificates like VeriSign, Equifax, etc then you need to add  under singer certificate of celldefaulttruststsore since it is common truststore for a cell.
