    I am trying to set SSL certificate for the website in the website bindings . So I am using xWebsite resource for this , In this when I provide the resource with following details

    xWebsite NewWebsite
    {
    Ensure = "Present"
    Name = $Node.WebSiteName
    State = "Started"
    PhysicalPath = $Node.PhysicalPath
    BindingInfo = MSFT_xWebBindingInformation
    {
    Protocol = "HTTPS"
    Port = 443

    CertificateThumbprint = "1C283E663C0BB5FAE92A83689A85790D2B3DDA0B"
    CertificateStoreName = "MY"
    IPAddress = "172.17.3.112";

    }
    ApplicationPool = $Node.NewWebAppPoolName
    DependsOn = "[File]WebContent"
    }
    I have changed my xWebsite Schema to have MY in place of personal for certificatestore name

    So when I run my configuration , I get the error :

    Failure to add certificate to web binding. Please make sure that the certificate thumbprint
    "1C283E663C0BB5FAE92A83689A85790D2B3DDA0B" is valid.
    + CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [], CimException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : WebBindingCertifcateError,UpdateBindings

    I have checked the Thumbprint it is a valid one . So please Let me know what is the problem ? Any help is appreciated 

    SSL certificates usually need to be in the machine store, not your personal store, so that IIS can load them.
