ESX SMH accessed from SIM ask for certificate

Hi all,

I installed 7.70 agents on EXS 3.0 and can access SHM from all servers, but not from SIM frontend. If I do it, browser ask for credentials for SMH, shows cert from CMS and will import them. (Please note attached screenshot). After entering credentials and click on login, IE shows blank white page with "Done".

PS: If I try to import trusted cert from CMS, the certificate can be shown and the validity is:
Not Before: Oct 12 10:39:00 2006 GMT
Not After : Oct 12 10:39:00 2016 GMT.

After clicking on "Add cert to list" button I see the message: "Certificate was not imported because certificate is expired."

Any ideas?
Thx.

The reason for this problem was, that the date on ESX was wrong (1.1.2005) ...
After date correction the cert was successfully imported.

Yes, not sure what it is about ESX installations and the date time! But it's caught me before now.
I now flush it out when I configure ntp.
