Ah, I was using the WSUS interface in the SBS console, which doesn't let you do that. I'll do it through the MMC snapin... hope it doesn't confuse SBS in some way.

One of the main reasons for the cert is to allow users to log into an SBS Remote Web Workplace from their home computers, so a corporate CA won't help.

Yes, update rollup 1 is installed on the server, and WSUS reports that 943729 is installed on all clients.
