The security certificate has been revoked

I have a SBS Premium server with a godaddy ssl certificate installed and had been running fine for almost a year. Suddenly when trying to access RWW. or OWA i get cert error the cert has been revoked. The same issue happens from inside the network but funny enough not from the sbs server it self. It only shows the cert warning with the option to proceed. The SSL is still valid for another year. Exchange Active Synch (iPhone) seem to work as well
Any suggestion how to troubleshoot this. Thanks

That error only shows up if the certificate is actually revoked. This can happen for a variety of reasons, but none involve SBS directly. The easiest solution is to generate a new CSR using the certificate wizard in SBS and then use the GoDaddy web interface to "rekey" the certificate with the new CSR. Rekeys are free, so this will effectively generate a new certificate that is not revoked.

I've also seen where someone else has accessed the certificate vendor web site. They request a new host name or a re-key for the existing certificate. This in turn causes the previously installed certificate to be marked as revoked by the certificate vendor. Therefore producing this same issue.

I have re keyed and reinstalled a new certificate but still get the same error. Is there anything else to do with the revoked certificate?
