Connecting data services to Salesforce Instance


I am trying to establish a conenction from BODS to Salesforce instance. I am following a very information post from SCN and it has helped me immensely. But i am stuck on the last piece where it is giving me an error when i create a Datasource connection in DS. The gentlemen in the post has received the same error as described in the post but someone else was able to get it fixed by updating the CACERT file.

Error that i am receive is as follows:

Solution that someone posted was to "update the CACERT file present in the "%LINK_DIR%\ext\jre\lib\security " path "

I checked the path and there is a CACERT file in the above listed location, but i am not sure how and what to update this file with - Do i need to ask my salesforce team if they have a certificate file or i can just download a certificate file and generate a certificate using keytool utility? If someone can help me understand the process that would be ideal; because i dont know if salesforce Admins generally can provide that information.
