So what happens when SHA1 falls out of support?

On December 21, 2016, in news, by susan

If you have your SBS (and Essentials) servers set up properly with a third party SSL cert and not a self signed cert, nothing should happen.

SBS can support higher SSL certs than SHA1.  If your SSL cert is soon to be out of date or blocked just go to CheapSSL certs or Godaddy or wherever you get cheap certs and buy a third party SSL certs.  No one should be using self signed certs anyway.

    Hi – have a SBS2011 server which has been chugging on fine, together with a member server for the Premium element to run Remote Desktop for users at a remote another site.
    This is the first I have heard about SHA1 – how might it affect an SBS setup like ours?

    Thanks
