Hello allow,

I have recently renewed a SSL cert and when i initailly installed it over a year ago i went through a whole process using differente websites to create the CSR etc for a UCC SSL cert from Go Daddy. I now have renewed and want to know the easiset way to install on SBS2008 with Exchange 2007. I have heard that using the Certificate wizard will work but most say to use the Exchange Management Shell which i used initially. Anyone can guide me on the correct process to install after i renewed? The cert is renewed on GoDaddy site and all i have to do now is create the CSR on the server and then upload to GoDaddy. Anyone can guide me on the steps starting from creating the CSR on the server? Thanks,

Jimmy

This is SBS, best to use the SBS methods:
Go to the SBS management console | network | connectivity | highlight certificate and on the right select add a trusted certificate.
This will start the wizard, in the first window select "I want to renew my current trusted certificate with the same provider"
Follow through with the CSR generation and save it, then select in the last window " My certificate provider needs more time to process the request", and finish the wizard
This often generates an error message and if remotely connected you will lose connectivity for a few minutes.
When you get the certificate download it and run the wizard again, this time selecting " I have a certificate from my certificate provider"
Browse to the certificate and complete the installation. Again if connected remotely you will loose connectivity for a minute or so.
With GoDaddy it is also necessary to import the intermediate certificate. To do so see Sean's explanation 1/3 of the way down the page under "Then click the IIS Installation Instructions"  http://sbs.seandaniel.com/2009/02/installing-godaddy-standard-ssl.html
