Small Business Server 2011 Essentials provides a wizard that will enable you to purchase and install a trusted certificate through our partners GoDaddy and eNom. This blog post will cover the scenario where you already own a trusted certificate and want to re-use it instead of buying a new one. If your domain is not registered with GoDaddy or eNom you can use the wizard to import the certificate by choosing the manual workflow option which is described here http://sbs.seandaniel.com/2011/06/how-to-manually-configure-sbs-2011.html.
The easiest method to import the script is to use the following PowerShell script. Download the ImportTrustedCertSBSE.ps1 script to tools/temp folder and run it as an administrator from WssPowerShell.exe. This script requires that you have your certificate in .pfx form. You will be prompted for the certificate path and password.
Alternatively you can manually import the certificate using the following steps.
** Note: that if you are manually creating a request thru IIS, follow the below TechNet article on making and completing the request in IIS. Once the certificate is installed continue with the other steps to ensure the bindings are correct. Then follow steps 2 and 3.
