FDA URL Changes From HTTP To HTTPS - IIS settings - E2B Generation issue after importing existing Self-Signed Certificate

The solution below is working perfectly fine when a new certificate is created by “Create Self-Signed Certificate” ; however it doesn't work if an existing certificate is imported.

Setting up https binding in IIS
a. In IIS select the top level website, home.
b. In Feature View, under IIS find “Server Certificates” and open it.
c. On the right select “Create Self-Signed Certificate” (if you have a certificate to use you can import it here also)
d. Give the self-sign certificate a name, then click ok to close the dialog.
e. On the left, navigate to the website under the Sites folder and select 'Default web Site'
f. On the right select “Bindings…”
g. Click on Add, select type https, leave the IP Address and “All Unassigned” and Port as <xxxx>.
h. On the same dialog add the SSL Certificate. Then click ok to save.
i. On the site binding dialog you should see the line with type https, Port <xxxx> and IP Address as *
j. Close the site binding dialog.
k. Reset IIS for the setting to be applied.
l. Stop Argus Interchange Service
