Redirect HTTPS requests to HTTP Maintenance Page

I am moving a few web servers to a new building and was planning on throwing a temporary web server up with a maintenance page.  I have a Windows 2003 virtual machine with IIS6 and have everything pointing to this maintenance page.  I had to mimic some of the virtual directories but basically got all the HTTP requests going there.

HTTPS requests are bringing up a "page can't be displayed" page, which I am assuming is a client -side error.  I have redirected all custom error pages to this maintenance page and cannot figure out how to get HTTPS requests to redirect to HTTP without having a certificate installed.

You cannot redirect HTTPS requests in IIS. Your best bet would be to put a redirect in the header of the html document.

I was able to accomplish this by creating to IIS sites, and exporting/importing the certificates into them.  when I did my cutover I just changed the DNS in advance so the host names would point to the same HTTPS hostname and not get any certificate errors.

found a solution by importing the certs onto the temporary server.   No naming issues as the DNS records were changed when the server was cutover
