Resolve untrusted certificates during discovery

Untrusted certificates occur when a storage array attempts to establish a secure connection to ThinkSystem SAN Manager , but the connection fails to confirm as secure. During the array discovery process, you can resolve untrusted certificates by importing a certificate authority (CA) certificate (or CA-signed certificate) that has been issued by a trusted third party.
