Removing the VMWare Server SSL Certificate Trust Warning – via: IIS Hacks | Server and System Administration

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/05/09

When you install VMware Server 2.0 on Windows Server 2008, Internet Explorer will give you a warning that it cannot load the local VMware Server console web-site at https://servername:8333.

The reason is that the security certificate is self-signed by the local machine, not by a trusted CA.

Internet Explorer does not allow you to add that CA, but you can from within Windows Explorer.

The Removing the VMWare Server SSL Certificate Trust Warning article explains how.

Note that on x64 Windows Server 2008 systems, the VMware Server certificate by default is in the C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Server\SSL directory.

Finally, you will need to add https://servername:8333 to the trusted sites in Internet Explorer.
