Yes, and in fact by default this is how SBS is set up to work. The certificate wizard does not create UCC requests (those would have to be done manually) and if you allow SBS to manage your DNS settings, the supported vendors support the necessary records.

If you choose to manage your own external DNS, the steps are still very easily, as outlined here:

I find single certs are a great value and easy to administer and maintain. I'd only use UCC certs in rare occasions where I actually *need* to address a server by multiple names.

Oh, minor correction though. The above will *not* get OMA working on SBS 2008. This is not a certificate issue, however. OMA does not *exist* in Exchange 2007, thus it does not exist in SBS 2008.

The GoDaddy cert for $49 will work.  I just used it tonight to get our SBS 2011 server online.

BEst thing I have done since the upgrade .. Outlook RPC over HTTP is working like a champ.
