1) The name that the certificate was issued to needs to be valid for the new server.

2) For IIS6:
This is how I usually do it, this way the server cert is backed up as well:
Open properties of site - Directory Security tab - View Certificate button - Details tab - Copy to File button - follow the wizard and make sure to choose to include the private key and assign a password.  This will make a .pfx file that you can copy to the other server.
To import the PFX - open site properties - Directory Security tab - Server Certificate button - Import certificate -follow the wizard and point to the .pfx file.

You can also use the Server Certficate button to 'move certificate to another server' which works fine too.  If you have any problems with it, then do the above method.


If you don't use IIS6, please post what you are exporting from and importing to.
