Encrypting File System renewing Certificate Question

When I go into the GPO for our domain and go into the Encrypting File System I notice that the Certificated issued to Administrator is due for renewal?

In the certificates snap in all I need to do is right click and renew certificate. This one will not let me do this.

How do I renew this Cert?

Thank you.

Where do you see the due status in snap-in?
Right click on Certificate and goto Property. What you see there? do you see a Red Cross mark on certificate itself?

Let me know.

I see the due date on the snap in uder:
 Computer Config
  Security Settings
   Public Key Polies
    Encrypted Data Recovery Agents

There is a certificate in the issued to Administartor and the expiry date is may this year.

I have right clciked on the certificate and gone into porperties and there is a red cross there.

Nothing in the Event Viewer that says anything about the above.

There are instances where the digital signature is not valid. As mentioned earlier, this can be due to a certificate in the certificate chain being revoked, expired, or not chaining to a trusted root.
