Digital Cert Problem SBS2008

I have an odd issue with the installation of a GoDaddy issued Digital Certificate and an SBS 2008R2

On the day I was installing the certificate on a Clients SBS 2008 server we experienced a blackout.  The client hasn't seen a need for a UPS - you know "you can drag a horse to water but you cant make it drink"

I have the exported text used to generate the Go-Daddy request, and have since received the certificate from Go-Daddy.  The problem is that when I run the wizard to update the details, it nol longer allows me to install the certificate.

I have tried the troubleshooting lists in the Official SBS blog with no luck, and several troubleshooting guides from other sources.

So - if I have the orginal key in text form used to generate the Go-Daddy request, and the Go-Daddy issued certificate - how do I install it if the Wizard thinks its all finished

If the Wizards fail, you would just install it directly in Exchange, as this is what you really need it for. There are various resources on the net that show you how to install a SSL cert in Exchange 2007.

For example:
http://www.sslshopper.com/article-how-to-use-ssl-certificates-with-exchange-2007.html

If worse comes to worse, you will need to re-generate your CSR and have the certificate re-issued. This (normally) dows not cost anything. Again, you would need to do this direct from the Exchange Powershell prompt as shown in the above article.

Good luck!

The answer is correct, however I had hoped there were other options.  Additionally the certificate is required for RWW, OWA and CompanyWeb.  I might be misguided in my understanding of the portions of the SBS2008's use of the certificate in this case

Thanks for your input
