Receiving cert errors when connecting to SBS through RWW

J C asked
I don't receive any errors when I browse to the RWW web interface from outside nor do I receive any errors when I launch the OWA. When I connect to the server through RWW it gives me a cert error and when I look at the cert, it is the self-signed cert that SBS automatically generates. I purchased the bundle and installed the certificate through the SBS management console and my assumption was that it would cover the RDP piece as well. Can anyone tell me how to fix this so it uses the trusted godaddy cert for the RDP piece?

If I have understood the question correctly you are looking to configure Remote Desktop on the server to use the third-party GoDaddy certificate:

Run tsconfig.msc
Right-click on the connection RDP-Tcp and click Properties
Click Select in the Security section of the General tab
Select the cert you want to use (I assume that you've already added it?)
Click OK

what is the authentication method? you should have to check IIS virtual directory if you disabled windows authentication and basic authentication re-enable them restart IIS then try , but i have question is this comes from certain user or everyone? other solution is to try to change password for a user and try login again

Do a find for GoDaddy. The instructions are a third of the way down.

The intermediates need to be installed before the actual certificate or things behave whacky.

The SBS Third Party Trusted Certificate wizard should be used to seat all SSL certificates.
