Discrepancy with configuring SSL & Sharepoint

Issue: In the midst of religiously following “Publishing a SharePoint Web Site Accessible to External Users” (Microsoft, October 2003), I ran into a conundrum. The instructions state at one point:

103. In the Web Server Certificate Wizard, complete the following: z. On the Server Certificate page, select Assign an existing certificate.

The problem is that there is no choice for “Assign an existing certificate”.

Resolution: According to post by Les Connor, there may be a discrepancy in the KB:


7. On the “Server Certificate” page, click “Assign an existing certificate”, and then click “Next”.


7. On the “Server Certificate” page, click “Replace the current certificate”, then click “Next”.
