IIS SSL binding certificate lost on server restart - 2008 R2 IIS7.5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey,
    For a company I work at, I've recently had to migrate a horde of sites from IIS6 to IIS7.5 (using the MS deploy tools). This included many many sites which share a wildcard SSL certificate. Since ironing out bumps with the sites I just discovered that whenever the new server (2008 R2) reboots SSL is broken on all the sites, as the generic SSL binding for the sites is no longer bound to the correct certificate.
    I found this (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2025598) article which exactly matches my experience and symptoms, except it's solution doesn't work - our applicationhost.config has no id="5506" entries. 
    I'd love this to be solved so the server is safe to reboot. Any help greatly appreciated.
