ISA 2000 server ssl certificate problem

Posted on 2005-04-26

I recently had to replace the self made ssl certificate on my OWA server so in turn I updated my ISA 2000 server. The problem is when I log into the web site I still see the old ssl cert and not the new cert. My question is how do I get the new cert to show up when I go to my OWA page. I am a newbie when it comes to ISA 2000 server and would greatly appreciate any help with this problem.

    Have you created new certificate in CA? Then go to IIS manager and add new certificate to your OWA site. Unfortunately don't have it in the office so i can not provide you with step-by-step instructions.

    BTW why you expecting to see new certificate if you just reinstalled ISA? Certificate is stored on OWA machine not on ISA.

    I believe you might be a little confused, No I did not just reinstall ISA I just purchased a SSL cert and replaced the SSL cert that was self issued [I am trying to set up RPC over HTTP, my understanding of this there are some issues with self issued certs] I realize that you must install the cert on the OWA server and this has been done. I also see the cert if I go directly to the OWA server I see the new ssl cert. The problem is when I try to access it from the Internet it goes thru the ISA box and here lays the problem the server is only showing the old self made cert.
    If I am correct you need to publish the cert on the ISA server so it will allow ssl traffic to transverse.
