fighting exchange 2007 certificates

bhgewilson used Ask the Experts™
I have been through this site several times but everytime I get in trouble with certificates and Exchange 2007 I come right back.  I have a documented process that has worked for close to three years on these certs.  Now in this case I installed a SBS 2008 server.  Ran all wizards.  Went through and got a third party san.  

Name was
Alternative names were  magred-svr, magred-svr.wahoo.local,,

All of this and I get the cert back.  Go into IIS, import.  Go into ESM shell.  Import, get, enable and I keep getting the TLS message.  

So I tried several things to fix this and to no avail I did not fix it.  I tried changing certs in IIS, changing them in the certificate authourity.  I screwed up CAS like this so I have had to rebuild it from scratch.  Now when I go into\owa I get a message about call stacks and virtual directory errors.  I went in and stopped the sbs web applications, started the default website and all is working as it was before except the certificate.

I am lost, where should I import the cert.  What should I try.  Thanks!  And yes I am desperate!!!!!

When I go through HTTP I get page not displayed.

So I guess I am trying to figure out how or where to get the cert added.  
try and check...


this is what I did above when I get the security certificate problem

HTTP gets page not displayed.
Ok I fixed this by allowing bindings on the default website, re-keying the certificate, importing again and it worked.
