    Its a browser warning. The certificate used by oracle manager is a self signed one so its normal for you to get this error.

    Just hit :  Continue to this website (not recommended).   and your set to go..

    If you want you can import this certificate into your browsers so you wont get any more of this warnings.

    I have tried importing it and it says import successful but still gives that error.
    do I need to import it using my Vista machine or login to db server and import certificate there?

    OK, from the link provided above (from your previous question), the anwer is pretty much the same, you need to install the certificate.

    The steps might be a little different depending on your specific setup.

    Here is what worked for me with the help/assistance of our System Administrator (I just always clicked Continue anyway.  The warning never bothered me).

    When you go to install the certificate and View the certificates.

    Make a note of the 'Issued to' server name.

    If you are defaulting to 'localhost' in the URL, change to the server name for the cert.

    -Click the "Certification Path" tab
    -Select the top level certificate.
    -Click 'View Certificate'
    -Click Install.
    -When asked what Certificate Store to put it in select 'Place all certificates in the following store.
    -Click Browse
    -Select: Trusted Root Certification Authorities
    -On the Security Warning Screen: Yes

    Close everything out.

    Thanks for your help.

    I tried exact same what you wrote but it was not working. Then did a little change by selecting physical store ( insede Trusted Root Certification Authorities) for certificate and chosed Local Computer. then it worked.

    but its only working on a machine where I apply this fix. Is it not possible to fix it in a way that we dont have to do it separately on each and every vista machine from where I am accessing?

    You will need to check with your sys admins to see if there is a way to install this certificate globally.
