  • SSL for 3 sites hosted on same IIS server

    Oct 05, 2020 12:05 PM|rossmcduff649|LINK

    We have website A, Website B, and website C and default site is 'stopped'. Trying to use one cert for all three sites and be able to use https for all three. Have bound the sites to same cert (cert comes form our onsite CA), have DNS redirect to the host server name (e.g. user types https://websiteA, DNS redirects to hostserver1). Not working, says cert not secure but does allow us to browse site. Assigned hostserver1 three different IP addresses and bound each site with assigned IP address and https - 'server not found'. Also, when binding to all site's individual IP, http for the three sites asks for username/password. Hoepfully this makes sense and someone has experienced this before. Thanks for reading.

    wanted to add that the cert has SAN entries (e.g. SAN=wesbiteA.domain.com&websiteB.domain.com&websiteC.domain.com)

    Run a report and the cause should be clear.

    Hi rossmcduff649,

    Did you add this certificate to the list of trusted certificates?

    When the trusted list is not added, you can indeed access the site through a browser, but you will be prompted for an insecure connection, that is, the certificate is not secure.

    You can manually add the certificate to the list of trusted certificates.

    Best regards,
