Remote Desktop connection: "the identity of the remote computer cannot be verified"

Trying to establish a remote desktop connection from a Win2008 Server (SP2) to other Win2008 Server (SP2) fails with the following error message "The connection cannot continue because the identity of the remote computer cannot be verified".

This might be caused by incorrect time on one of the Win 2008 servers. Correct the time or activate automatically time synchronization for each server.

An additional Workaround:
If the described time correction has not solved the problem, then you may try to use the IP address instead of the host name to establish the connection.
