When you are using encrypted SSL communications to connect to Device Manager - Storage Navigator, the browser displays a warning message if the security certificate is not issued by a trusted certificate authority. This warning message also appears when the IP address or host name specified in the URL does not match the CN (Common Name) listed in the security certificate.

If this warning message starts to appear after an update of the storage management software, check to see if the SSL certificate returned to the default. If the SSL certificate has returned to the default, install the certificate file that was backed up when the storage management software was updated.
