Applies To: Windows SBS 2008

 

This section explains how to troubleshoot some of the errors that you may encounter when you use Remote Web Workplace.

A message appears that says, “There is a problem with this Web site’s security certificate,” (see Figure 7) when you try to visit the Remote Web Workplace Web site

Cause.   Your server may be using a self-issued security certificate for your organization’s domain name (such as http://contoso.com), rather than a trusted certificate from a certificate authority.
