Hi Experts,

We have a Load Balanced web server cluster consisting of 2 web sevrers sharing a wildcard certificate. With one of the sites loaded SSL works fine. I have added a new host header for the second site but when I select the same wildcard cert I get "This page can't be displayed" locally on the web server. I have even tried the following:
c:\Windows\System32\inetsrv>appcmd set site /site.name:"testsite" /+bindings.[p
otocol='https',bindingInformation='*:443:testsite.domain.com']
SITE object "testsite" changed

and it looks like it has taken the change but no luck in opening the website. Any ideas?

TIA

Are there any other sites running on server2  ?


Also can you edit the bindings of the site in server1 and verify the "friendly name" for the certificate bound to that site in IIS.

Compare the friendly name to the certificate for that site on server2 the friendly name should begin with *

Finally remember you to have run iisreset after you make certificate changes to your website.
