Sorry, this is probably a dumb question, but just want some assurance... Installed my first SSL certificate on an IIS 7 server and just want to know if there's a way to verify the SSL certificate will work when the intermediate expires. Want to make sure because I will be out of town when it does expire. The installation seemed to go successfully and if I look up the domain using a third party verification site, it says it good, just that it expires soon.

If I open the server certificates in the IIS manager, it shows that one expires soon, and then another listed that expires in two years. Is this all I need to know and just trust things work right, or is there something else I need to look for/do?

Thanks, David K.

  • Did you actually assign/bind the new cert to the site? – TheCleaner May 22 '13 at 20:19
  • I believe I did. followed the instructions at support.godaddy.com/help/article/4801/… Is there a way to verify this after the fact? – dave k May 22 '13 at 21:22
  • that's what u did...but it doesn't appear to be bound. Steps 29 and on...but see here too: support.godaddy.com/help/article/6015/… – TheCleaner May 22 '13 at 21:25
  • got "Results:No issues found." green box around server certificate, intermediate certificate and trusted root certificate. BUT the server certificate still says it's only good till June 1st. Is this normal, does the actual one take over once that expires? – dave k May 22 '13 at 21:38
  • did you do an iisreset and reset the IIS services or website? No, it won't simply take over. – TheCleaner May 22 '13 at 21:40

Two https types were listed, changed the port on the intermediate certificate, then on the full certificate changed the IP to what the intermediate was using instead of *. Checked using godaddy's ssl verification tool and had the correct expiration date.
