256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows registry
You receive an e-mail message from a Web Conference session presenter in Microsoft Office Communications Server. When you click the Join the Meeting link, you receive the following error message:
An error occurred verifying the server's certificate. For more information, please contact the server administrator.
Additionally, you cannot join the session.
This issue occurs because the computer that is hosting the Microsoft Office Live Meeting 2007 attendee does not have the correct certificate in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store. This certificate must be signed by the same certification authority that provides the Web server and the certificate to the server that is running Microsoft Office Communications Server Standard Edition or to the Microsoft Office Communications Server Enterprise Edition pool.
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
Obtain the correct certificate from the same certification authority that provides the Web server and the certificate to the Communications Server Standard Edition server or to the Communications Server Enterprise Edition pool.
Open Microsoft Internet Explorer.
On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
Click the Content tab, and then click Certificates.
Click Import, and then complete the Certificate Import Wizard. Provide the location of the certificate file.
You can confirm this issue by enabling logging for the Live Meeting 2007 session presenter. To do this, follow these steps.
