When trying to resolve another problem, I have run the ceicw in SBS 2003.

When I got to the bit about the web server certificate, I have stupidly selected "create a new web server certificate".

Now the push email to all the mobile phones isnt working.

Is there a way to roll back the changes I have made on the server?

Hello roy_batty,

the cert will be overwritten by the new one.
you can find it under \\SBS\clientapps\sbscert
you can create the same cert, but you will need to re-add it to the mobile devices.

OK I have created a new certificate and I can see two new certificates in that folder. One called ISACert the other called SBScert (well thats what I think they are called - not actually looking at the system right now)

I then email it to one of the users experiencing mobile connectivity issues. He has install it by copying it onto his phone then running it manually.

My question now is, is there a better way of deploying the new certificate. I have heard that the certificate is copied to the mobile device via activesync when it it connected to a PC via the USB cradle. Is this correct?

yes, you need to copy it locally (via usb) to the PDA, don't need to use activesync actually.
then just double click it > install.
