IIS certificate and security
Posted on 2014-04-09
I have two quick questions:
1. I have a hot/warm server architecture for my IIS server in that if the primary fails, I will have to restore my SQL database backup to the warm server; however I'm unsure of what I would need to do for my IIS security certificate. It is installed on the primary server as servername.com and was wondering how I would re-install it on the warm? Can I do it as the same name of the hot or do I have to change the name? I'd like to install it now, but don't want it to interfere with the current hot server.
2. What is the best way of securing IIS? I was going to run MBSA to have it scan for patches, but was also wondering how to harden it better.
