The error in the link below relates to a SQL Server 2008 install and a MS CRM install which is in the final stages. See Link:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS-SQL-Server/SQL-Server-2005/Q_26626009.html

I searched on REMOVE CERTIFICATE SERVICES AND USE HTTP
But does that leave us vulnerable with the server exposed in some way. If we REMOVE CERTIFICATE SERVICES AND USE HTTP are we in danger of getting hacked.

How do we remove certificate services and use HTTP safely for CRM and SQL Reporting Services........or is it smarter to.................

...................... do the inverse of this....In other words. Do we set the SSRS to use HTTPS in some way so that we have the more secure environment...?

We use CRM 4 and SQL 2005, so although not exactly the same as you, I can yell you this: We did not install certificate services, and I don't worry much about being hacked. We have a very good firewall protecting us from the outside, and our machines are secure enough on the inside - nor do I think we have any rogue employees who would know how to or try to hack the server.

If you'd like to have some 'proof' you could always try this: I have a dummy user account on my domain with the same permissions as other employees. Using this account, I try to hack servers, software, etc. If I can't, then I'm not to worried about someone else being able to do it.

Do  you know how to remove the certificate safely. I do not know exactly which one to do this on. See image below.

I do not know by doing the wrong item here that I might screw up the servers security. Do you know which one I do this for.

I erased the name of the server but left I think enough relavant information.
