Replace self signed SSL cert with Godaddy cert

Hi,
I am running SBS2003 with IIS 6.0 and have some time ago installed a self-signed SSL cert with which I can access OWA (by telling IE to accept the site's certificate).

I have now purchased a SSL cert from Godaddy and would like to install it. Do I need to remove the self-signed cert from IIS  before I generate a new CSR?

Any help with the process would be much appreciated.

indeed you must remove the current certificate to generate a new CSR.
but , if you like to carry out the service while you doing that , you can always create a "fake" website , different ports , even stopped, and create your csr on that one. works like a charm.

follow GoDaddy instructions on how to acctually create and submit your CSR , get the certificate & install it + their chain.

http://help.godaddy.com/article/560 - create CSR
http://help.godaddy.com/article/4875 - install the certificate + chain <<super important.

after you're done , that is you have a valid certificate on the "fake" site.. just go to the production website , remove the certificate and assign the new GoDaddy certificate. 20 seconds service down :)

enjoy .

Thanks ilantz, downtime is not an issue so have removed existing cert. Waiting on auth fron godaddy, will then follow the link you provided for installing cet and chain.
