OES SP2 certificate invalid

I have a test server running OES Linux SP2 with eDirectory 8.7.3.7
installed. Access the remote manager via port 8080 and was able to login.
However, periodically get a security warning saying:

The web site's certificate is invalid. Do you wan to continue?

Name: 127.0.0.1
Publisher: 127.0.0.1

Box for "Always trust content from this publisher.

New to Linux, would like to know how to view the certificate on the OES
Linux server.

Thanks
AJ

This is a harmless warning. It's just letting you know that you haven't
imported your tree's root certificate yet. If you want to see the
certificate, most browsers have a "view" option on the warning, or you
can usually double click the padlock down in the status bar.

Re: OES SP2 certificate invalid

How can I import the tree's root certificate to my OES SP2 server then?

Thanks

You don't, your server is already using a certificate minted from
eDirectory (assuming you installed eDir during the initial install).
What you need to do is import your tree's root certificate into your
browser so that your browser trusts any certificates minted by your
tree. You can get a copy by either going to your certificate authority
in imanager and exporting the self-signed certificate (DON'T EXPORT THE
KEY) or I believe a copy is also found on all OES Linux servers joined
to the tree in /etc/opt/novell/SSCert.der or on Netware servers as
sys:/public/rootcert.der.

Just import the certificate in the browser, and make sure that the
DNS/IP address that you're going to in the browser matches what's on the
issued certificate, and you shouldn't see any SSL warnings.
