Issue installing certificated on IIS6

When installing a new certificate on IIS 6, it gives me an error "Selected certificate was already installed to another server".  This is a brand-new cert and has no been installed elsewhere.

I have re-keyed and retried this numerous times.  Cant make work.  This is a godaddy cert if it matters.

Urgent!

Try This

1. For IIS Manager, Right click on the web site, select Properties, select Directory security Tab. In the Secure communication sub section, click server certificate wizard, remove this certificate.

2. Open Certificate of Authority, Browse to Issued Certificates, find your Request and right click, All Tasks : revoke Certificate.

3. From your webserver, follow the following technet article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299875
     -since you already have the certificate, you can skip to the "Install the certificate and set up an SSL Web site" section.

let us know.

I appreciate the quick response.  I am very experienced at installing these things.

I don't understand what these steps will do.  I have already deleted the old certificate (step 1) before I created the new csr.  The Godaddy site says the following when I click Revoke:

Revoking a certificate removes the certificate from your account, making it impossible to reissue, and you might not be eligible for a refund. Revocation is usually appropriate if:

•The security of your private key has been compromised
•You wish to discard this certificate permanently
If you intend to re-key your certificate, do not revoke it first.

I think there is a problem with the server.

Have you had a chance to reboot the server?

No.  Didn't try that.  I wil if it might help.

I tried something else.  I stopped the existing site.  Then created a new site.  Generated a cert (rekeyed the cert on godaddy), downloaded and installed.  It installed, however when I view the certificate, it says "The certificate is expired or is not yet valid".

I am thinking the registry might be messed up somehow.

Hi,

May i know whether this is Windows 2003 /Windows 2008 (32Bit)?

May i know whether your "Personal Store" exceeds more than 100 Certs?

Steps to Try:

STEP1: Clear the Expired Certificates from the Respective Stores if exceeds > 100 Certs

If yes, please delete all the Expired certificates from the Server's Personal Store and also from Root Certifcate Store if possble, if your certificate issued by Godaddy had a Inter-mediate CA then do the maintenance in Inter-mediate CA as well, otherwise not needed.

Step 2: Reset IIS /Reboot whichever is applicable.

Try installing the cert once again.

Keep me posted :)

Was able to get working by creating a new cert on a w2012 box, exporting it, and them importing on w2008 & w2003.  Get flaky errors on all three boxes.  The Microsoft software is very buggy.  Even Microsoft couldn't figure it at at a price of $275.

Thanks to all for helping.
