I recently tried to renew a godaddy SSL cert to replace the same exact one installed two years ago. This process has been a complete circus--all instructions found on the net and on the godaddy site give many different ways--but incomplete-- of how to successfully complete this. Needless to say, the initial install failed using the Command shell with error "Private Key missing". After contacting godaddy, I was instructed to "rekey" the ssl cert as a new one instead of a renewal by creating a new CSR. I installed that one in IIS, and it appeared to install correctly. Outlook reports seeing the new cert, as well as Outlook Web Access. Even doing an SSL certificate check using www.digicert.com/help
returns a successful install of a new cert. All mobile devices, Outlook clients and web clients appear to work normally.
HOWEVER, the exchange server reports in the Event Viewer that the SSL certificate is expired, and Thunderbird also reports it that way from off site. There must be a way to convince the Exchange server that the new cert is not-expired, as well as Thunderbird. Any ideas?
