Server Public Key Corrupted

I just found out that one of our servers overseas, its
certificate is going to expire on 2/26/02 and when I tried recertifying it, it failed because it says that
"The public key or certificate stored in the Address Book has been corrupted."
How can I fix this problem?  If I have a tape backup from a month ago, would copying the public key of the server from there and pasting it into the current server document, would that be okay?  How could the public key have been corrupted?  Is there an easier way to restore the server's public key?
HELP!

Here is the procedure from technote !

Delete the corrupted public key

1. Open the Person or Server document in the Public Address Book.

2. In edit mode, delete the user's or server's public key from the Person or Server document in the Public Address Book. In a Server document, the public key is in the Certified public key field of the Administration section; in a Person document, the public key is in the Certified public key field of the Public keys section. If the request was to upgrade a flat user name to hierarchical naming, the public key is in the Public key field of the Public keys section.

Replace the deleted public key

1. Switch to the ID associated with the Person or Server document.

2. Choose File - Tools - User ID, and click More Options.

3. Click Copy Public Key to copy the key to the clipboard.

4. Paste the public key back in to the same field in the Person or Server document from which you deleted it previously.

Rebuild the view in the Public Address Book

Enter the following command at the server console to rebuild the $Users or $Servers view:

load updall database -t view

where database is the file name for the Public Address Book, usually NAMES.NSF. view is $Users if the public key you're replacing is a user's or $Servers if the public key you're replacing is a server's.

Perform the request again

1. Open the response in the Administration Requests database.

2. Select Perform request again.
