To modify the configuration and create a new SSL certificate:

  1. Obtain a website certificate from any certification provider.
  2. Go to Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Service (IIS) Manager to open the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) for IIS.
  3. Expand the Microsoft IIS server to view the virtual site list.
  4. Right-click Default Web Site and click Properties.
     
    The "Default Web Site" is the IIS website to which TMCM is installed by default.
  5. On the Default Web Site Properties screen, go to the Directory Security tab and then click Server Certificate > Next.
  6. On the Server Certificate Method screen, select Import a certificate from a Key Manager backup file and then click Next.
  7. Type in the key full path and file name (for example, cm_cert.key) and then click Next.
  8. Specify the key password and then click Next.
  9. In the Imported Certificate Summary screen, click Next to import the certificate.
  10. Click OK to apply the certificate and return to the Default Web Site list. The SSL port field is enabled after importing the certificate. You can modify the SSL port value from the default value, 443.
  11. Right-click the Control Manager virtual directory and then select Properties.
  12. Go to the Directory Security tab and then click Edit under Secure communications section. The Secure Communications window appears.
  13. Select Require secure channel (SSL) and the encryption level (128-bit).
  14. Click OK to close the Secure Communications window.
  15. Click OK to apply the changes and then go back to the Default Web Site list.
  16. Repeat Steps 11 to 15, this time for the WebApp virtual directory.
