Just setup SBS 2008 server for a client. I purchased a multiple domain SSL from GoDaddy. I know we need to point exchange.clientdomain.com, remote.clientdomain.com, autodiscover.clientdomain.com, and mail.clientdomain.com. I see the SBS 2008 wizard. From there I can Add a Trusted Certificate, but that is only for 1 domain. Can someone point me in the right direction?

To do this with multiple certificates you need multiple IP's & multiple sites setup to do this - each IP can only bind one certificate, you need to either get a wildcard certificate or add additional IP's to your server & setup additional IIS virtual dirs, have a look at: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124811.aspx

You sure? I thought certificates "bind" to domain name, not ip's.

We have successfully set this up before in Exchange 2007 Standard, not SBS, but it was all Powershell based. Does anyone know if the SBS 2008 wizard works, or if we have to use Powershell?

The SBS wizard does everything that you need for you. Just follow the prompts and setup the DNS as it asks.
Otherwise you can do it the manual way if you wish, that will also work. I have done both.

Did you generate the request using the wizard or Powershell? You need to complete the request using whichever method you used to generate the request.

1.From the Exchange Management Shell command line, type the following:

New-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest -KeySize 2048 -Path c:\DigiCertCSR.txt -SubjectName "c=US, l=YourLocalityOrCity, s=YourStateOrProvince, o=YourCompanyInc, cn=YourFirstDomain.com" -DomainName YourSecondDomain.com, YourThirdDomain.com -PrivateKeyExportable:$true

Although this command is too long to fit on one line here in your browser, you need to enter it into the management shell as one line. Of course, you need to replace the details listed in this sample command with the details of your own organization including your two-letter country code (c=), your city or locality (l=), your state or province (s=), and your organization legal name (o=).

Notice that the first domain name is listed inside the "-SubjectName" after "cn=" and additional domain names are later added after the -DomainName parameter with commas between the additional domain names. You can add as many additional domain names as necessary.

2.You will now find your new CSR file named DigiCertCSR.txt in the root of your C: drive. Open this file with a text editor such as Notepad and paste the entire contents of the file, including the BEGIN and END tags to the GoDaddy.com order form.

Import them with:

 Import-ExchangeCertificate -Path c:\certificates\filename.cer -friendlyname "Contoso CAS01"

 Then Apply them with:

 Enable-ExchangeCertificate identity <thumbprint> -services SMTP, IIS, POP3, IMAP

 The thumbprint will be given after you import the cert. Make sure you create the cert with the internal and external names (including just the internal server name with no domain name), as well as autodiscover.domain.com

If you are talking about multiple sub domains, then you just need a wildcard certificate.
