The following step-by-step instructions describe how to install a self-signed SSL certificate manually on a client machine. It is however also possible to push out certificates using Active Directory. For more information, see the Active Directory documentation.
These instructions only work with self-signed SSL certificates. They will not work with SSL certificates created by a certificate authority.
It is not recommended to install self-signed SSL certificates in a production environment. In a production environment, an SSL certificate issued by an in-house certificate authority or issued by a third party vendor should be used.
To install a self signed certification, follow these steps.
It is important to type the first part of the URL exactly the same way as specified in the SSL certificate, for example server.company.com
In the Select Certificate Store dialog box, press OK.
