Windows SBS 2011 standard
Ok, I have followed a lot of tutorials with regards to importing the GoDaddy SSL certificate that I have recently purchased. I have also followed certificate wizards on SBS 2011 and I'm stuck!
When I open Windows SBS Console - And run the Add trusted certificate "I want to use a certificate that is already installed on the server" - I receive the following error message:
Please see attached images. Please help

    Sounds like a modulus mismatch occurred.  What you'll probably need to do is regenerate the certificate request from the SBS console.  Copy the new request key that is generated.  Login to Godaddy and go to your SSL certificates.  Find you current issued certificate and go to Manage.  There should be an option to reissue the certificate which will then ask for the request key that you just copied.  Once the SSL cert is reissued, download it and then try importing it again.

    This was taken from this link here which applies to 2008, but should apply to 2011 as well:
