SBS 2011 self signed certificate not updating in SBS console after renewal

The self signed certificate on a SBS 2011 server was expiring, so I ran the Fix My Network wizard and renewed.

This updated the certificate when you go to the OWA web page, however in SBS Console under network > connectivity > view certificate properties the date had not changed.

To create a new Certificate installation Package, I deleted the old one > ran the Fix My Network wizard > created a new package.  This had a different date again.

To get the certificate in the SBS console to match the OWA certificate > I ran the Add a trusted certificate wizard > select I want to use a certificate that is already installed on the server > selected the newly created self-issued certificate.  Now if I View Certificate Properties in the SBS console it matches the OWA certificate.

To update the install package SBSCertificate.cer file > on non-domain joined system > run IE as administrator > open OWA site > import cert into IE > in IE options > content tab > certificates > find certificate and export as SBSCertificate.cer > save into Certificate Distribution Package folder after renaming the old cer file.

Add Terminal Server (RDS) to SBS 2011 Remote Web Workplace (RWW)

Locate the following registry key:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer

  1. Add a new key named RemoteUserPortal
  2. Under the new key RemoteUserPortal create a new Multi-String Value entry named TsServerNames .  Edit the new entry and insert the name of your RDS server.  If you have multiple RDS servers add them on a separate line.

For this to work the RDS server must be in the SBSServers Active Directory OU.  I create a OU under the SBSServers OU called RDSServers, so that I can easily apply specific GPO’s to RDS servers.

Setup Wizard for Update Rollup for Exchange Server 2010 ended prematurely because of an error

Getting the following error when applying exchange update rollup:

“Setup Wizard for Update Rollup 4 for Exchange Server 2010 (KB982639) ended prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified. To install this program at a later time, please run the installation again.”

The fix was to run command prompt as administrator and then start the update from the command prompt.
