After you import a server certificate into the Windows local computer certificate store, you must take additional steps to allow a View server to use the certificate.

1

Verify that the server certificate was imported successfully.

2

Change the certificate Friendly name to vdm.

3

Install the root CA certificate and intermediate CA certificate in the Windows certificate store.

4

Restart the View Connection Server service, security server service, or View Composer service to allow the View service to start using the new certificates.

To perform the tasks in this procedure, see "Configure View Connection Server, Security Server, or View Composer to Use a New SSL Certificate" in the VMware Horizon View Installation document. Follow the instructions in these topics:

"Modify the Certificate Friendly Name"

"Import a Root Certificate and Intermediate Certificates into a Windows Certificate Store"

Note

The VMware Horizon View Installation topic "Import a Signed Server Certificate into a Windows Certificate Store" is not shown here because you already imported the server certificate by using the certreq utility. You should not use the MMC Snap-in to import the server certificate again.

However, you can use the MMC Snap-in to import the root CA certificate and intermediate CA certificate into the Windows certificate store, as described in the VMware Horizon View Installation document.
