Problem installing renewed SSL Cert SBS2008

I renewed our SSL cert with GoDaddy. During the renewal process GoDaddy gave me the option of just re-using the information from our last cert which I did (autofilled the fingerprint). I only got a single cert for remote.mydomain.com. The cert is for IIS7

I removed the expired cert and installed the gb_iis_interidiate.p7b cert in the intermediate repository using mmc with no problems.

I have not been able to install the remote.mydomain.com.crt however. The instructions I have been following are for SBS2008 and require using the SBS console wizard to complete the installation. The certificate was not initially showing up as an option in the wizard. I manually installed it in the personal cert store and then was able to select it however the installation fails. I get an error saying "The imported cert does not match your web site". I also get an error (something about bad tag) if I try to import the cert through the IIS console.

I am wondering if the auto generated info provided by GoDaddy might be the problem. Perhaps I should have just generated an entirely new certificate request.

Any ideas how to proceed?

You need to remove the faulty certificate. Then recreate a new CSR and send it to godaddy to generate the certificate for you. After installing the new certificate, everything will be back to normal. It is very easy to have problem with the certificate renewal if the vendor doesn't do it properly.

enjoy!

I orginally only ordered remote.mydomain.com. What other domains should be inlcuded in a properly configured cert? I seem to remember autodiscover.mydomain.com, servername.mydomain.com, but am not sure what a complete list would be

Didn't realize rekeying was an option. Worked perfectly
