OWA in Exchange 2K3 & W2K3, SSL Certificate, Inheritance overrides

Have been following the CYA Securing Exchange Server 2003 and Outlook Web Access book Chapter 5 "Securing the Outlook Web Access Server".

Have successfully requested, received and installed a certificate for my Default Web Site, however when I went to require SSL on my Default Web Site I was presented with a dialog box regarding inheritance overrides. Specifically I am being asked:

The following child nodes also define the value of the "UNCPasword" property, which overrides the value you have just set. Please select from the list below those nodes which should use the new value.


My question is should I select all, some or none?

Thank you,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Select none.

I have seen this more and more often with servers that are running Exchange 2003 SP1.

From what I can tell this is a bogus issue and has to do with the DS2MB service touching the UNCPassword Metabase setting erroneously.
