VMWare View 5.0 Client - Remove Certificate Warning Message at Startup


How to remove the Annoying certification warning pop-up on VMware View 5.0 Client is pretty straight forward. I know this is a pain, but for CP Compliance the default behavior was changed.

NOTE: DO NOT ADD THIS TO A GPO WITH SERVERS!!!!! If added to View Brokers or any servers with non-trusted certs, SSL connections will be BLOCKED!!!


This can be done as a local policy or as a GPO update for computer hardware based policies.

a)      On the local machine or AD Server import the vdm_client.adm template
1)      Gpedit.msc
2)      Add the vdm_client.adm template from_C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Client\extras (copy to server for GPO change)

b)      Enable the setting for “Certification Verification Mode” and set for "No Security" to bypass security cert checking.

That's all...
