  • Godaddy SSL Cert. won't verify.

    SBS 2008 SSL signed Certificate problem.

    Godaddy does a verify against the domain records. It asks to create a TXT record which I've done against remote.myDomain.org.uk but their instructions are to call the record name DZC and put the 6 didgt code in the body (which is all I could do). My ISP does not seem to allow naming of the record so of course when I go back to verify again it seems to fail.

    Unfortunately the failure gives no clue as to where the process fails.

    Please note I want one of our users to use a Vodafone mobile dongle on one of our laptops (which currently only has the self-signed cert. installed for use without the dongle). It would appear this does not allow the mobile device to connect through to the server via it's wireless interface (not the laptop wifi). I am hoping the GoDady cert will automatically allow both type of connection - when I get it working that is).

    Has anyone experienced this and knows what to put in the A record TXT file?

    Have you tried any of the other methods for verifying the domain name?
    They do provide a number of options, including a web page modification. You can also ask them to do a manual verification.

      I remember having a similar issues, but can't remember exactly how I resolved it.

      However, I checked my DNS settings and noticed that I created TWO records, but I have no idea which was the one that worked.

      I have attached the screen shot of the records I created.

        Well, as I had no website associated and the ISP doesn't allow a separate name for the text record I got them to manually check and approve which they did. I have now downloaded the cert. but not finished the procedure yet.

          GoDaddy normally verify by email to the registered admin contact for the domain -- no record creation needed.

          Check who is your contact and advise him/her to approve the request -- if they won't, consider moving the domain

            This is new to me as well. My understanding was that they check the domain details against whois database and then generate an e-mail to the Registrant, technical contact listed in there. This is usually an ISP contact or your registrar.
            Once they reply the verification process is completed and they issue the certificate.

              It depends on the domain.
              For some domains there are no public information to use - co.uk for example so they have another process.
