need help with digital certificate

Posted on 2011-05-03

I have 2 virtual win 2008 servers, one server is a domain controller, and the other one is a domain user and i installed Certification Authority on it to communicate securely when i use RDC.

When i RDC to that server where i installed Certification Authority from the host machine, I get a warning saying that the digital certificate cant be trusted, even though on the host machine i manually added the certificate to the Trusted Root autority via MMC, but still every time i RDC to the server, i get the warning.

why is that?

im not a domain user on the host machine , i login only locally, dont have any account on the Domain Controller yet.

is it because of that? should i login to the Domain for the digital certificate to work correctly?

what could be wrong???

    On the machine you are logging on to, you need to go to http://certificateserver/certsrv and download the certificate chain.
