Hello

We are running Windows 7 desktops and Windows 2008 Server servers.

I need to get to an external website: https://shop.mydomain.com

When I go to the website on my desktop it works fine, however when I try and access it on my server I get a certificate error

"The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.  "

I assume there is a certificate installed on my desktop that I need on the server but have not sure of the exact steps to resolve this?

Is it specific Website or many sites?
If it's one site then add the CA which issued the Certificate to trusted root in the machines by deploying it through group policy.

if the CA certificate is missed for many websites , then you have to update the Root CA certs.

On the server , when the certificate error appears in security status next to the address bar, click on the X (lock) ,
view Certificate . a certificate pop up appears .
go to certification Path tab> chose the Certificate that has red X mark ( if it's chained certificat , then usually it's the first or the second certificate)
Click View Certificate > another page will appear,
choose install Certificate > next > Choose the second option : Place all certificates on the following store > browse and choose "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" > next > finish.
Close the browser & browse.

from your desktop you can export it from the lock sign in the IE as in he picture.
lockbut you need to know which certificate has the red X sign.

The process from the server when you click the same place on the error sign after select "
continue to the website ( not recommended).cert
