I'm trying to update certificates on a Windows 2003 server that has several IIS web sites.  My wildcard certificate, root and intermediate are all in the MMC store.  I apply it to web site, and it takes.  I go to the web site and click on the certificate info button, and I see my new cert.  

I do an IISRESET and *poof*, everything reverts back to the old certificate.  I've used this same certificate on a number of servers now, and have succesfully made it work on all the others.  WTF is going on???

*  Logging on as local administrator (this is not a domain server)
*  Windows Server 2003 Standard SP2
*  There's nothing related in the event viewer
