Hey Gurus,

Can I issue more than one self-signed certificate for the same server? I have already issued one for
mail.domainA.com and now I want to issue one for mail.domainB.com.
I have a multidomain setup and I want to instruct my clients out of the LAN to browse to http://mail.domainX.com/certsrv and download a certificate to check their email via RPC over HTTP. But I want them to download it with the proper name. I know the same (mail.domainA.com) one works for all domains. I was wondering if it was possible to do what I stated in my questions and HOW-detailed-? please.


THanks

You can't have more than one SSL certificate per http server. Doesn't matter if it is self signed, purchased or both.
SSL cannot use host headers - it is a 1:1 mapping from the IP address to the name.

What you will find most multi domain sites do is have a generic domain name that all users use. That name will often be attached to the hosting company's name.
