    We have a server (windows 2008 R2 with IIS 7.5) and have few sites setup in IIS.

    When we try accessing the sites using http inside the server, working fine without any issues.

    If we try sites using https inside the server, it is giving security certificate error and if we continue its working.

    Recently we cloned this server and created second server as it is. Now in side the new server , is we try the site using http its working fine. But if I try using https, its not loading the site, not getting the security certificate error as well, its diplaying "This page can’t be displayed".

    May I know what will be the issue, how to fix this? I want the sites to work similar to the first server if I try using https. 

    FYI. SSL configured for the sites only in LB not in servers in our setup.

    First I would try removing the existing cert and reinstalling it.

    Did you configure the site binding? You have to tell us more about the site; site config.,the cert. Ect.

    There is no certificates inside servers. Certificates configured only in load balancer (F5), not in the app/web server.

    Site binding in IIS using only port 80.

    Certificates configured only in load balancer (F5), not in the app/web server.

    Without an HTTPS binding on IIS itself, page cannot be displayed is expected.

    Then you can only access the site via https://vip where vip is F5's IP address.

    If the F5 is doing the SSL communication you have to point it there.

    What you might be able to do is to have the local host on your web server and have your site e.g. www.mysite.com pointing to the IP of your load balancer.

    But as a general rule there is very little need to access your website from the web server itself.

    Use another machine in your network to do this.IT is a more realistic test and stops giving confusion and looping around when trying to do things on the same server

    If you visit a website and your browser gives out a warning, “This site’s security certificate is not trusted”, then it indicates that the certificate in question is either not signed by a trusted root certificate or that the browser is not able to link that certificate with the trusted root certificate.

    If the certificate is indeed signed by a trusted certificate authority (CA) then such warning indicates the possibility that one of the intermediate/chain certificates is not installed on the web server in between the primary and root certificate. To check the ‘Certification Path’ in internet explorer, open ‘Certificate Details’ and click on the ‘Certification Path’ tab. You must contact your certificate authority if you have any problem in installing intermediate/chain certificate.
