Move main SSL wildcard cert to new hardware
Posted on 2011-10-27
We currently have a wildcard certificate on IIS6 running on a 2003 server. That certificate is the main wildcard certificate which is used to generate all other certificates for all of our other servers that we put into production. We are replacing the server with new hardware, on 2008r2 64bit IIS7. We intend on bringing down the old hardware and replacing the IP Address with the old IP Address as well. My concern is the SSL cert. Is there a method to transfer the cert over to the new hardware and it also generate the needed cert for any new servers we put into production without having to go through GoDaddy and either rekeying or repurchasing a cert.
