Switching SSLs when on Multiple HTTPS Bindings

Posted by Rose Bush on November 2nd, 2015

I had to switch out a certificate on a server and got the below error messages, documented here to make this familiar int he future. I was worried that it would break the other sites on the server, 2 others using the old certificate. Instead the server updated the certificate on all 3 and all 3 remained up and running. I could swear that is not how it happened in the past, but this may have been a different case.

At least one other site is using the same HTTPS binding and the binding is configured with a different certificate.  Are you sure that you want to reuse this HTTPS binding and reassign the other site or sites to use the new certificate?

The certificate is associated with this binding is also assigned to another site’s binding.  Editing this binding will cause the HTTPS binding of the other site to be unusable.  Do you still want to continue?
