Vmware vCenter 5.5 Certificate (There is a problem with this website's security certificate.)

We recently moved to a new windows 2008 r2 sp1 server with Vmware vCenter 5.5 installed. We copied over the C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\SSL files from the old vCenter 5.1 .
When we go to the Vmware vSphere web client we get the
 (There is a problem with this website's security certificate. 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 checked under the mmc\console root\certificates and it shows up under Trusted Root Certification Authorities\Certificates. But under the General tab it says "windows does not have enough information to verify this certificate"
Any ideas on what we could try?
Thanks

Check the New Server has a  Root CA imported for this certificate

Also check the name on certificate matches the fqdn of this new server

Are new and old servers same fqdn?

1. There is no Root CA imported. Would we import the rui file from (C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\SSL)?

2.The fqdn name is different. The old one was vcenter5 the new one is vcenter.
