Hi,

Am having issues getting SSL certificate on the Security Server to work with VMware View 5.0 Client. Have followed instructions using the keytool method and while the the certificate is valid through the web browser, I get the message "The identity of this server was not verified".

Am not prevented from logging on but want to get rid of this message and get the 'green tick'. Certificate is a UCC certificate through GoDadday. Have copied keys.p12/locked.properties files from security server to connection server where it works fine.

Have used the following method to setup the certificate after not having much luck with the vmware documentation.

Has anyone else managed to get this working?


Regards,



Tony

The certifictae is a UCC certificate so it has the fqdn of the security server's external url and the fqdn of the view connection server.

Problem resolved. I just had to change View Client SSL configuration to default (warn if connection may be insecure). It was set to allow the unverifiable connection. Thanks anyway.
