What to do next

Test the trusted certificate by manually installing it on the endpoint. If an end user accessing the Horizon FLEX server receives a prompt to allow an untrusted certificate, then the certificate is not trusted. If the end user does not receive the prompt, the certificate is trusted and can be used. Add the trusted certificates in the source virtual machine.
