Move ssl cert from win2003 iis6 to win2008 iis7?
Posted on 2010-08-24
I've read a few posts about this on EE, and most say the cert is tied to the servers host name. And if the host name of the server you want to move the cert to is different. Then you need to get a new cert.
Is this still true?
When I checked out the certs details on the Win2003 IIS 6 server, the friendly name is the name of website the certs been assigned to, not the servers host name. I don't see the servers host name listed in the details.
If it's not true.
Do you simply run the the (win2003 server) export wizard and choose to export the private keys along with everything else and save it to a file. And then run the import routine on the (win2008) server you want to install it on?
