Hi Folks,

I've installed SharePoint 2013 on Windows 2012 R2. Just a single application server and a seperate database server for internal use.

I configured it for SSL;

I configured Alternate Access Mappings,  IIS binding on port 443 and configured DNS.

aam
Then i created a Self Signed Certificate on the SharePoint server. Added it to the certificate store;

cert
cert2
When i configured the binding in IIS, i chose the same certificate there.

IIS Certificate
Finally I added the certificate in SharePoint Central Admin, under Security > Trusts;

Central Admin
Still getting the certificate error when browsing to https://managedservices What's wrong with my configuration?

self signed certs are not trusted unless added to the trusted root providers store

As a good practice, always use FQDN for certs and not NetBIOS names as well as when creating websites.

Ok thanks, but i can't really choose or change anything in the certificate. It is automatically created using the FQDN of the server. Well i'll try get it to work and then get back to you guys.
