Web sites not working on SBS 2008 after certificate renewal

We have a server running Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2008. We were getting alerts that the certificate was going to expire so based on troubleshooting guides I found, I ran the Fix My Network wizard to perform the certificate renewal successfully.

Now, however, none of the web sites (OWA, sharepoint, Blackberry Admin) are accessible. The Blackberry Enterprise Server is the most important and I verified that those services are still running. And if log on to the server using the besadmin account, I can open the administrative web page but from any other machine on the network, I can't. This is important because we do phone provisioning via USB cable and we can't keep going to the server to do this.

Help!

we have not been able to get this to work on the Blackberry admin page and have determined we will need to contact Blackberry technical support. This is a production system and can't afford to be tinkered with any further.

Rerun the "Configure your internet address" wizard in the sbs console, see if this fixes it.

Make sure you are at the console because you may loose connectivity intermittently while this is happening.

see if you can ping the FQDN of the BES server internally and externally

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Also, did you run the "Add a trusted Certificate" wizard in the SBS console to re-add the new cert?

I had already run the Configure Your Internet Address wizard and that did not resolve the blackberry admin site or the companyweb site. I can, for some reason, get to the OWA site though.

I ran the Fix My Network wizard to install the certificate.

Hello,

I am not good at coding so lets do it from the IIS manager, open IIS manager -> Click On the website -> Custom error -> Edit Feature from right side -> Detailed.

For internet explorer, Tools -> Internet Option -> Advanced -> untick show friendly error message

Regards,
Sanjay Santoki

I believe I set the options as you mentioned. When I browse to https://companyweb , I get the following:

HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden
The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory.

A default document is not configured for the requested URL, and directory browsing is not enabled on the server.


When trying to browse to the BB admin page at https://servername.domain.local:3443/webconsole/login , I get the following:

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

one other note. I mentioned earlier that if I log in to the server using the besadmin account, I can successfully browse to the BB admin page (https://servername.domain.local:3443/webconsole/login). On the same server, if I log in using the administrator account and go to the BB admin page, I get the Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage error. ???

I am trying to follow that thread but I am having trouble finding the SSL settings they are referring to. On another note, I found that I am getting this message when trying to browse to a number of pages on the SBS server:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.0 Date: Thu, 12 Apr 2012 18:44:05 GMT Connection: close

Does that mean anything?
