Import CA Certificate ZCM 10

If you (Like me) don’t like waiting for the error that the Certificate Authority of you ZCM server is not trusted, you can import this certificate in you webbrowser.
This will speed the initial connection up.


  • Connect to you ZCM server with IE7 (https://zcm-server/zenworks)
  • Wait for the error that your certificate is not trusted
  • Click on Continue to this website (not recoomended)
  • Wait until the ZCM inlog screen appears
  • Click next to the address of you ZCM server on the Certificate Error. A screen will pop-up
  • Click on View certificate
  • Click on the Certification path tab
  • Click on the name of you Certificate Authority (the one with the red cross in it)
  • Click on the View Certificate button
  • Click on the Install Certificate button
  • Click on Next
  • Again click on Next
  • Click on Finish
  • You will get a Security warning that your about to install the certificate, so click on Yes
  • You will get a message that the import is successful
  • Close the certificates an close the browser
  • Again connect to you ZCM server. If everything was done alright you won’t get a error that the certificate is not trusted
