Misleading message after local installation of clients

DP 10.04

In case of local client installation, the following message pops up (example for windows):
"Cell manager certificate was succesfully imported, however client was not imported into cell!
Perform the import manually from the cell manager or from one of the other clients of the cell."

From a security model standpoint I do agree with the CM shouldn’t blindly import the fingerprint from a new client created by a local client install.  That makes sense.  But the message above should be made informational rather than a warning/error condition (and no exclamation mark).

It would be better to change the text from an error message style to an instruction. Proposal:
The Cell Manager certificate was succesfully imported, the next step is to perform the import manually from the DP GUI or command line "omnicc -import_host <Hostname>.
