How do I add web based certsrv - I get 404 - not found when going to http://2008sbsservername/certsrv

When using Internet explorer on my 2008 SBS server and trying to go to "http://2008sbsservername/certsrv";  I get 404 - not found

I am assuming this is pretty easy but I can't find how to add it.

How do I add this feature so that I can access by IE?  I am trying to create a self signed certificate and I can't continue without this feature.

Thanks for any help.

The SBS internet connection wizard will create a self signed certificate and assign to all the necessary locations. It will also let you install a certifcate from a certifcation authority too.

To be more exact it's in the SBS Console. Under Network->Connectity tab->Setup up your internet address (right hand side).

I have a Self-issued certificate listed and issued to mydomainname.com and issued by 2008sbsservername.  

The problem I am having is with email in regards to SMTP.  When I try to send email using SSL I get an error saying "Microsoft Exchange could not find a certificate that contains the domain name e-mail.mydomainname.com "

That is because in Exchange management console | Server configuration | hub transport | received connectors | my receive connector under the general tab and section "Specify the FQDN this connector will provide in sresponse to HELO or EHLO: I have "e-mail.mydomainname.com"  it used to have "2008sbsservername.mydomainname.com"  which I didn't want advertised on the internet.

So this all boils down to having a certificate that is set for SMTP that contains the domain name e-mail.mydomainname.com.

Does this help clarify what my ultimate goal is?

Problem resolved -  All references were to use the web based CA to import the request and output a key that can be imported into exchange.  Since my web based CA was not coming up and no one could tell me how to fix it I used the windows based CA to move the Cert request to personal certificates, then I could see it in the exchange PS to enable the key for SMTP.

No one else provided answer I could use since they kept saying to use the web based CA, which was not installed on my server.  So through trial and error I found out how to use the windows CA to do what I needed.
