Can you use different certificates in IIS for each site?

Morning,

We are currently running a SBS2003 server and IIS 6.0. I have recenty installed a wildcard certificate in IIS for our domain. However, I have been made ware that HTTPS over RPC does not work when a wildcard certificate is in use. In the future we will be using our wildcard certificate to facilitate secure access to internal sites such as our helpdesk and monitoring tools etc. It is because of this that I don't want to just replace the wildcard certificate with a specific single one for use with exchange.

I was wondering whether it was possible to use a specific certificate for use only with exchange? When I brose to the 'exchage' site folder within IIS and view secure communications the 'Server Certificate' is greyed out.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

SSL certificates are set at a virtual server level, not directory.
Therefore you can have a certificate on the Default Web Site, and it will cover everything on that site.
If you want to use a different certificate, then that will need to be in a different site.
Furthermore as SSL certificates are unique to the IP address, you will need additional IP addresses on the server, or use alternative ports. You cannot use host headers with SSL.
