Certificate configuration

After many hours of frustration, i've reached my endpoint...
What is the proper procedure for configuring and deploying turbo-SSL cert from GoDaddy, including intermediate cert, on SBS2003 R2 premium?  Currently, I have IIS cert as publishing.localdomain.lan and the ISA cert is supposedly from GoDaddy as server.domain.net, which is also our FQDN.  However, when I view the cert in ISA, it appears to be self-signed, and I get intermittent cert warnings when logging in from the internet outside the domain.  RWW, OWA, OMA, and VPN all are functioning properly.  I'm using a 3rd party SSL cert for the purpose of active-sync on multiple smartphones via exchange direct push.  Ironically, active-sync is the only feature I cannot get to deploy appropriately.  Please help with any questions or comments.

Hi there,

You can apply the certificate via the CEICW and attach the cert file in the wizard this should take care of the changes in IIS and also ISA for you providing you have also selected the options for OWA

For additional reference see the below wizard walkthrough

Also what certificate is shown when you try to login from the internal network?

Have you tried Godaddy support.  I have Digicert and they have some nice tutorials and I would hope Godaddy would as well.  

This does not mean it is possible...but it does look like another has had a similar issue:

Thank you to both of you.  I reviewed both links and found that I have applied the techniques already.  However, for some reason unknown to me, my cert is now showing as  GoDaddy Class 2 cert from both inside and outside doman, but, I stil cant get active-sync to function properly.  When i sync with SSL required on the phone, i get error code 85010014.  When I uncheck require SSL, i get error code 85030022; 'the server you are sync'n with is not an Exchange server'.  I thought the certificate was the issue with active sync, but i believe we resolved that already.  HELP!

It can be an issue with the order you install the root cert before the int cert, I had to resolve this exact same issue a few months back. I removed all the certs and started again. worked like a charm. Also be sure to use the CEICW on SBS or you will have yo configure ISA manually with can be a troublesome if you havnt done it before
