I need to renew a certificate on an IIS server.  I do not recall if this server was moved or if the certificate was originally generated on an older system.  In any event I am in IIS and selecting my Web Site.  When I Right click on the Site and select properties I then switch to the Directory Security tab.

At that point no wizard starts and the "Serer Certificate" Option is greyed out.   How do I get  to create a new CSR so that I can add a renewed cert?

I should also mention that I CAN view Certificate and Edit, but that is it.   I don't see an obvious delete or anythign else that might help me.
