Configuring IIS SSLBindings in Powershell
There seem to be a lot of posts kicking around the web about how to do this, and they all show the same solution. Unfortunately that solution doesn't seem to work when you are using a wildcard SSL cert and need to target a binding that is identified by it's host name.
I thought I would share with you the basis of what is needed to create an SSLBinding record that targets a specific website binding.
new-item -path "IIS:\SslBindings\!443!KyleTest.web.local" -Thumbprint "8EDD9DFCDEB6F1A6D4CC1D4BFD696G71F7DED245" -SSLFlags 1
|IP Address||Port||Host Name||Store||Sites|
The Key difference between the example above and the more common example shown on The Weekend Scripter blog are that instead of piping the certificate information into the new-item cmdlet we are specifying it directly through parameters. I am also not specifying the IP address of the binding in the item path.
