[Horizon View] Fix : Server’s certificate cannot be checked

How to fix the error message in VMware Horizon View : Server’s certificate cannot be checked

Recently , when i was working on a certificate renewal, i faced to an error in the Horizon View admin interface regarding the certificate.

Server’s certificate cannot be checked or Server’s certificate is not trusted

Server's certificate

The issue is coming from an error regarding your CRL (Certificate Revocation List), this parameter is missing or your VMware Horizon Connection Server cannot reach the CRL url.

To fix this error, you can generate again your certificate with the proper CRL or simply add a registry key in your windows server.

 

Navigate in   :  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareVMware, Inc.VMware VDMSecurity

then add the key : “CertificateRevocationCheckType” as a “Reg_SZ” with value “1”.

Revocation List registry key

 

Then restart the VMware Horizon View Connection Server service

Restart Horizon Service

Et voila, the error is gone.
