    I am looking for the procedure for installing a real CA's SSL certificate
    onto SBS 2K3 AFTER I have already used the "Connect to the Internet wizard"
    to create and install the built-in certificate. I want to get rid of the
    built-in certificate and install a real commercial certificate from a CA.
    This procedure seems like it may be a bit different in SBS vs standard
    server beacuse of the "helpfull" wizards.

    I imagine I must
    1. Manually remove the built-in cert from the default web via IIS Admin
    (correct?)
    2. Create a request for a new ssl cert via IIS Admin
    3. Go buy a ssl cert from CA
    4.? -This is where I was unsure what to do next. Do I install the cert via
    IIS Admin or use the "Connect to the Internet wizard" or both?

  2. I am looking for the procedure for installing a real CA's SSL certificate
    Once you purchase the commercial certificate, you can rerun the Configure
    Email and Internet Connection Wizard and when you get to the part regarding
    the certificate, you can elect to "Use a Web server certificate from a
    trusted authority" and browse to your new commercial certificate.

    Thanks!
