    the Error is : Error: 26014, Severity: 16, State: 1.

    Unable to load user-specified certificate [Cert Hash(sha1) "4DA0CE5FC4F31EBB638F0632422C466527185BCD"]. The server will not accept a connection. You should verify that the certificate is correctly installed. See "Configuring Certificate for Use by SSL" in Books Online.
