Windows 2000 Server certificate expiring soon.

I have a customer with a 2000 server, whoever installed it only issued the (buiilt-in) certificate for 2 years, which due to expire in the next 3 months, I search and read but cant seem to find any reference to how to re-issue the certificate, any experts could direct me to how to create a new one before it expires ?
Thanks

Hello - Is the CA that originally issued the certificate still online?  If so, then just request/renew the certificate.

Yes, you should be able to renew the CA certificate by doing a right-click on the CA in the MMC and select renew CA certificate under "all tasks". At least that is how it works in 2003. I think its similar in 2000.

I open up MMC but I dont have anything listed other than create new items.
The certificate is self-made under 2000 Server when first installed I think as I see no record of any purchases of any SSL certificates.
Thanks

I only noticed the expiry date when I were testing OWA, where it display the certificate info, and this one states it expires 07/07.

If I go into the Add/Remove programs under Cert Services, its not even ticked as anselected option, a bit weird.

The certificate had to come from your server, or from another server.  Is certificate services installed on that server?  Perhaps there is another server in your domain you could request a certificate from?

Hi F
I checked whats left on the paperwork, this is the only server, and I see no record of using another cert server as this started as a simple 4 user network, when using OWA, the certificate said its generated from this server, but I cant see cert service installed.
