Hello Experts - I've been coming across a lot of certificate issues lately and I want to get a better handle on how they work and how to get computers in a Server 2008 domain to trust them. Here is a list of items using untrusted certificates that I'd like to get worked out:
1) VMware Vcenter
2) Cisco Anyconnect VPN
3) Cisco wireless guest network
4) Cisco wireless private network
Each issues their own certificate which we're using now but since they are not from a trusted authority we get prompted to accept them at each use. One thing I really don't understand: when the certificate is added to the local machine's certificate store in my mind it should be trusted now. Instead I still get prompted to accept the untrusted certificate even after a successful import.
So I must be missing something about how certificate trust works. In addition to that I'd like to understand how to enable computers in my domain to trust a self-signed certificate using group policy. I'd very much appreciate any tips or info on the topic, thanks!
