>> Is it possible that this FMI cert could override an existing cert?  I've got a client who's setting up FMS13 now (2-machine).  Their tech dept said they'd installed an SSL cert on the web server but we didn't test it before installing FMS.  Now when we go to https we get the FMI "invalid certificate" warning.  The tech dept isn't the friendliest, so we're trying to check if the FMS install could have overwritten the existing cert -- or if this means that there was never one before FMS.
