VMware View and iPad (New SSL)

Well, as a part of my education and test I installed “VMware View 5.0” in my home lab and start using it for a while.
Since that day I’ve used “VMware View Client” for most of my works; also as the “VMware View Client for iPad” is available, I installed and used it a little without any problem.
As the server has a self signed certificate, I opened “Settings – VMware View” and selected “Allow the unverifiable connection” under “Configuring SSL…”.

After couple of weeks, I made a “CA Server” on one of my windows server in my domain and start generating some certificates for most of my servers and services including “VMware View Connection Server 5.0”.
For security reason and as I had internal “CA Server” in my home lab, I changed the policy for SSL on “VMware View” to “Reject the unverifiable connection” until today which I decided to use my iPad again.

While I tried to connect the connection server, I received a warning about its certificate as it changed during importing the new certificate, so I removed the server from list and tried to add it back again.

But following warning shown up

When I checked the server certificate detail it was all right.

But as the iPad didn’t trust my new “CA Server”, it wasn’t accept its relevant certificate as well; so I had to add it as trusted server to my iPad.
For doing so, I browsed my “CA Server” web portal and installed its certificate.

After adding “CA Server” as “trusted root”, I tried to reconnect to the server and this time my server and it’s certificate worked fine
