Problems Renewing SSL Certificate

DebbieHamatani used Ask the Experts™
HI All --

I have currently renewed my SSL certificate for our website.  On the website the certificate is correct and when you check the SSL installation from inside the firewall everything looks great, BUT when you check the certificate outside the firewall it still shows the old certificate.  This is on a 2000 Small Business server so both the Web Services and ISA services are on the same machine.

I think I am missing a step, but I cannot figure out what else I need to do.  The processes I have completed so far:
1.  renew and installed the certificate IIS 5.0
2.  exported  the certificate from the Personal Certificate folder  and imported to the Intermediate and Trusted Root Certificates folder.
3.  Deleted the cache from the ISA server
4.  Restarted the web service several times

Any help appreciated

The article was very helpful, but everything was already configured.  The only item different is when you:
Click to select the Use a server certificate to authenticate to web users check box.
Click Select.
Select your previously imported certificate.
Click OK
There are two certificates listed under the server the new one and the certificate that is going to expire.  Under the Defalut Website Site Properties --> "Directory Security" --> Secure Communications --> Edit tab, it lists the correct certificate.

open the isa gui - edit each of the publishing rules that is using the certificate and reselect the new certificate.
stop/start the ISA services or just reboot.
