MOSS and SSL...process to enable?

  Asked By: Sherri    Date: Feb 02    Category: MOSS    Views: 1766

I'm not really an IIS person, so some of these questions might
actually be IIS related moreso than MOSS related...

We have a MOSS farm up and running with 2 web applications. We now
want to enable SSL for at least one of the two web apps.

In googling tutorials, they all show how to to do this by extending
and/or creating a new web application. Is that the only way? Can one
retroactively enable SSL on their existing web app?

If not, what's the process? Do I extend the current one, then somehow
block the original non-SSL domain?

I think you should be able to add the HTTPS url to the list of Alternate
Access Mappings for that web  app. Then add the certificate in IIS and
verify it all works. If it does, you can probably remove the HTTP url
in the list of AAMs and tell IIS to require SSL. I've never done it,
but that's what I'd try if I were in your shoes.
