I have a template Win2k3 machine with IIS 6 installed with a valid SSL certificate. The https site works perfectly.
However, after cloning this machine from Virtual Center and applying a unique SID customization, the https site no longer works. IIS still claims to have the SSL certificate installed correctly, but ssldiag says there is a problem.
I have tried resetting the permissions on the MachineKeys directory and contents and various other fixes I've found online, but to no avail. I get the impression that sysprep (which VMwares customization uses) is not handling translation of IIS's metabase properly when it has a SSL certificate installed, but I haven't been able to find any definitive documentation to back this up. Microsoft claims sysprep handles the IIS metabase properly.
Any ideas? Has anyone else had this issue?
