If you haven't seen this post from Sean Daniel, go ahead and read it, this was a pretty recurring issue during the beta that just finished, and although proactive action was taken to try to explain how to use this field, it cannot hurt to learn a little more... Bottom line, very few people will ever need to use anything but the defaults here.

  • <p>Indeed, this particular issue cropped up on my own SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 migration. &nbsp;If you're not on top of this issue, expect to have plenty of challenges managing certificates if you get this wrong!</p> <p>Luckily, I'm planning another migration in the near future to test the SBS 2008 to SBS 2008 migration plans (<a rel="nofollow" target="_new" href="http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc664208.aspx">http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc664208.aspx</a>). &nbsp;I'll have a chance on that migration to fix the errors I made in my last migtation. &nbsp;And until then, I have another public domain that I can put to use on my install (better than the other option of 'rebuild').</p>
