X.509 cert error from Nessus scan?

I had posted this question on the ProLiant server forum also before I ran across this one.

I'm building a DL360 G6 for a prod server. One of our requirements is to perform a Nessus scan before adding to the domain. I've gotten some SSL Cert errors off of Plugin 51192, "The X.509 certificate of the remote host is not signed by a known public certificate authority."

The Plug-in output points to the cause being the HP self-signed certificate that installed as part of the System Management installation process. (Specific error is "unknown root CA in the chain.)

Is anyone aware if HP has addressed this? I have already run PSP on this box so all drivers/firmware are current.

You can replace the self-signed certificate with one from a trusted Certificate Authority if you wish.
