I have generated a self signed SAN certificate on SBS 2008.

Now I cant access IIS propperly.

This is what I did:-

Now I get 403.4 and site missing completely, and the default web site unable to start.

[PS] C:\Windows\System32>New-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest -SubjectName "
C=GB, o=shortdomain Ltd.," -DomainName,, exchange-svr, exchange-svr
.shortdomain.local, -FriendlyName "Exchange Hosting
 SAN" -KeySize 1024 -Path c:\san201105171150.txt -PrivateKeyExportable:$true

*************************************A0B  .....      C=GB, O=shortdomain ...

[PS] C:\Windows\System32>certreq -submit -attrib "CertificateTemplate:WebServer"

[PS] C:\Windows\System32>Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint

*************************************BFE -Services IIS, POP, IMAP ,SMTP

Overwrite existing default SMTP certificate,
'*************************************4AD' (expires 5/9/2013 11:30:55 AM), with
 certificate '*************************************BFE' (expires 5/16/2013
10:56:17 AM)?
