Hi All,

I have IIS 5 running 3 websites...

- www.ourdomain.com
- ha.ourdomain.com
- www.someotherdomain.com

We have had a VeriSign SSL certificate installed on www.ourdomain.com
for some time, which works fine.

Recently, I have installed a trial Thawte certificate on
ha.ourdomain.com, this was setup specifically for that domain, when I
view the certificate in IIS, I see ha.ourdomain.com, however,
accessing the site ha.ourdomain.com over SSL results in a security
alert, because the name on the certificate does not match the site - I
click on 'view certificate' and see that the SSL cert for www.ourdomain.com
has been provided...Not the cert for ha.ourdomain.com!

Must say I am confused...To my knowledge, the correct certificate was
installed on the correct site...and what IIS tells me conflicts with
what my browser says!

Any ideas of help will of course be appreciated!

Thanks,

Simon.
