In iManager or Console one, browse to the container with your BorderManager server and find the "TRC - [servername]" container.  Go inside this trusted root container and find the Trusted Root object for the problem server and delete it.

  1. Open iManager.
  2. Select "Novell Certificate Server".
  3. Select "Create TrustedRoot".
  4. Choose a name to identify the server.
  5. Browse to the "TRC - [server name]" on the server and select it.
  6. Browse to the file of the exported server Certcertificate, from when you exported it the first time.
  7. Click "OK" - it should say "Complete Success".
  8. Click OK.
