Installing SSL on Exchange SBS 2011

Ok I may have screwed up a bit.
I purchased a UCC SSL cert for my domain/SBS 2011.
I made a request using the utility in IIS not Exchange or the SBS console.
( this is where I think I erred).
I have my request cert approved and stuck installing it in Exchange.
Since I did not generate it in Exchange it does not show up as a pending request.
Do I cancel the original and resubmit, a..in Exchange or another place.
Or can I get through this .
It only lists the external address for my mail server but  can add other names (like remote.domain.com, etc.)

You can simply accept the pending request
certreq -accept c:\path-to-file\file.cer

Once that is done you can then simply proceed with the wizard in SBS to update with the new certificate.

Just complete the request through IIS manager.
It is only a problem if you are putting a UC type certificate on the server.
However do take note of the above - install the certificate using the SBS wizard.
