I have a wildcard cert that was csr'd on one server iis 6.

It is a commercial cert

ie.. *.domain.com

this server has www.  and test.  and training.domain.com

I have an iis 7 box that has practical. and unpractical.domain.com

I try to use the same cert on the iis 7 box but it shows up in the gui and vanishes.

I am NOT using headers so dont go there we are using separate sites.

This works beautifully under apache, what is going wrong with what I am doing with IIS?

Thank you.

I intend to wildcard across about 20 sites.

have you tried to export the SSL from the IIS6 server and them import to the IIS7 server?

Here is a page with instructions.

Make sure you have exported the certificate with the private key. If the private key is not included with the certificate, this it does'nt work properly
