Issuing SSL Self-Signed Certificate

Posted on 2012-09-19

We have a small business environment with two servers (SBS 2003 and Server 2003), where the current SBS 2003 already has a self-signed cert.
The second server is going to be used as a web server, so wanted to know the steps required to get the self-signed cert setup on the 2nd server?

    Accepted Solution

    Why use a self signed cert, when you could generate a signed one for free e.g.

    Or if you want to spend $10, GoDaddy will do the same.

    Either way you'll eliminate those annoying browser warning, as to installing a certificate in IIS, it's all point and click e.g.
