Trouble installing SSL cert in Exchange 2007

I've just downloaded a security certificate from GoDaddy. I successfully imported the intermediate certificate, then ran the Import-ExchangeCertificate program in the Exchange Shell and got a thumbprint. Next I tried Enable-Exchange-Certificate and got the error shown below "PrivateKeyMissing". How do I fix this?

How did you create the request  ?

You can simply run the below command from an elevated prompt

certreq.exe -accept <certfile.cer>

certfile.cer has to be the name of the actual certificate you intend to use (NOT THE INTERMEDIATE)

If the request was made in IIS simply go to IIS and complete the request.

I created it at goDaddy. When I requested the cert, it asked if I wanted to use a new CSR or the one for the existing certificate. I chose to use the one for the existing certificate. Note that I was not the one to create the original certificate 5 years ago, so I do not know how the then-administrator create the CSR.

Did that, got the error:
failed> certfile.cer has to be the name of the actual certificate you intend to use (NOT THE INTERMEDIATE)

I used 4111d11611d96.crt, not gd_iis_intermediates.p7b, the latter being the intermediate certificate (I assume). These were the only two files I received.

Not sure what you mean here. The request was made at and downloaded to my SBS 2008. The certificate is for Exchange and TLS. I tried the Enable-Exchange-Certificate command from the Exchange Shell.
Try the following command:
Run in an elevated command prompt

certutil -repairstore my 71E5569BD8DCECD18C352A7515CC077BE6F6001C

Here are my results. Does this mean it worked? Should I now run Enable-ExchangeCertificate or is that taken care of?

Looks like that did it.
You can verify the certs in EMC in the root of Server Configuration - should see green ticks all the way
In SBS you might need to run "Fix my network" from the SBS Console - Network / Connectivity tab.. and reboot the Information store service(this should be planned).
Yup you should be able to run the exchange command now.
Happy to help.

becraig: that did it, I was able to run Enable-Exchange-Certificate successfully.

I have another cert to install. Since your solution was so correct, do you know why I had this problem in the first place? Is there something I can do to avoid this situation with my next cert?
