    I just received a public ssl certificate and am trying to use it in SBS.
    When I run CEICW and point to the certificate file and click next, I get an
    error saying "No certificate has been requested for the default Web site in

    How do I correct or get around this?

    Hi Dalvar

    Would you want to try the following / might help found out from one of the
    site /

    1. Go to Start -> Run "mmc" (without quotation marks).

    2. Click File -> Add/Remove Snap-in -> Standalone tab -> Click Add ->
    Select Certificates -> Click Add.

    3. In the Certificate snap-in window, select Computer account

    4. In the Computer window, select "Local Computer".

    5. Finish. Click Close and OK.

    6. Expand to Console Root\Certificates\Personal\Certificates.

    7. Right click Certificates -> All Tasks -> Import.

    8. Run the Certificate Import Wizard.

    9. Select the .pfx file and finish rest of the wizard.

    10. After the certificate being exported, right click the certificate,
    select All Tasks -> Export.

    11. Run the Certificate Export Wizard.

    12. Select "No, do not export the private key" and finish rest of the

    13. After the .pfx file being exported to .cer file, rerun CEICW and test
    whether it works now.

    Please take your time to perform the steps. If anything is unclear, please

    I cleared the ISA rules and the Web Listener connections and reran the ceicw
    to get the system to work with the internal certificate as it was before. I
    am a bit confused about something which I do not find addressed anywhere in
    any SBS documentation.

    Is the trusted certificate to be applied in IIS to the Default Web Site or
    is it only to be applied to the SBS Web Listener in ISA?

    By the way the proceedure you outlined below does not work. When I got the
    cert ificate request back the instructions said I was to save the data as a
    ..cer file. If I do the Import proceedure in Certificat MMC and then do an
    export, the box to select pfx is greyed out.
