I am trying to import a PFX based wildcard certificate (*.cissltd.com) into a Windows 2008  SP2, 64 bit OS.  I am able to do the import through the MMC console with the certificate addin added under computer account - but when I go to bind the https: to the site in IIS - there is nothing in the "SSL Certificate:" box to select

i did an IISRESET after the import......

what am I missing?

thanks!

So you have done the following...
- opened IIS
- Expand Sites
- Click on Default Web Site (or whatever website you have)
- Right click Default Web Site
- Edit Bindings
- Click Add
- Add HTTPS
- Select the Cert from the SSL Certificates drop down
- Restart IIS

Ok, why not directly go ahead and try importing from with in IIS. Can you click on the Server in IIS and go to Server Certificates and then there is an Import option there. Can you give a try and then bind it later?

Hi,
Normally those steps above should help you in installing the certificate. Can you check the following?
a.Can you check in the registry that the certificate is showing up, HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SystemCertificates
b.can you check the certificate's properties itself?  the certificate's "Common Name" (CN) matches the host header
c. the issuer of the certificate is a known and trusted CA.
