Having trouble publishing access DB to https SharePoint2010 site with self-signed certificate.It works find on another site in a different web application using http without certs. Same problem as http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepoint2010customization/thread/f6561747-7184-47ed-a390-2e8939f2d532 Can someone shine some light on this?
With SharePoint 2010 you'll likely be using IIS7 which won't have SelfSSL.exe.
makecert -r -pe -n 'CN=my.domain.here' -b 01/01/2000 -e 01/01/2036 -eku 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.1 -ss my -sr localMachine -sky exchange -sp "Microsoft RSA SChannel Cryptographic Provider" -sy 12
Then edit the
https binding on the website to use the new cert.
The error "The name of the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site" comes when the 'common name' in the certificate doesn't match the address you provided in browser to access the site. When you create certificate,using SelfSSl.exe, you have to specify common name(cn), for example as:
selfssl.exe /T /N:cn=testsharepoint.com /K:1024 /V:7 /S:1 /P:443
If you proceed with the error, most browsers will allow you to go ahead and some (new browsers) will completely deny open your site.
Please try to create new certificate with correct CN or request the site using the CN provided at the time of creating the certificate
MakeCert was installed @
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Tools
and I had remove the single quotes around the CN
makecert -r -pe -n CN=my.domain.here -b 01/01/2000 -e 01/01/2036 -eku 220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1 -ss my -sr localMachine -sky exchange -sp "Microsoft RSA SChannel Cryptographic Provider" -sy 12
