Godaddy Certificate problem Tomcat 7.0.57

Last Modified: 2015-04-13

I have a seemingly normal basic 7.0.57 Tomcat WebServer built. I have done a few others without this problem...

Ordered Godaddy cert after running the CSR and Keystore command below, and upon recieving the zip file, I ran the last 3 commands of the list. This has worked on other windows 2012 servers and I havent had to jump through the hoops that seems apparent with this one for some reason.

The current error when going to the site is as follows.

"A secure connection cannot be established because this site uses an unsupported protocol."

I installed all three certs, root, then intermed, then site cert. I even tried the cross cert one time, with no luck...

Here are the commands I ran.
"c:\program files\Java\jre7\bin\keytool" -keysize 2048 -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keystore c:\tomcat.keystore

"c:\program files\Java\jre7\bin\keytool" -certreq -keyalg RSA -alias tomcat -file c:\cert\csr.csr -keystore c:\tomcat.keystore

"c:\program files\Java\jre7\bin\keytool" -import -alias root -keystore "c:\tomcat.keystore" -trustcacerts -file "c:\gd_bundle-g2-g1.crt"

"c:\program files\Java\jre7\bin\keytool" -import -alias intermed -keystore "c:\tomcat.keystore" -trustcacerts -file "c:\gdig2.crt"

"c:\program files\Java\jre7\bin\keytool" -import -alias tomcat -keystore "c:\tomcat.keystore" -trustcacerts -file "c:\xyzxyzxyzxyz.crt"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
