Restore Security Certificate form a bakcup

I've had to restore an SBS 2003 server to a date prior to the installation of a security certificate.
Can I Restore this from a later backup ?

If you haven't backup your certificate then no. So it depends if your backup contains the cert itself. Anyway, if it is only a self assigned cert then there shouldn't be much problem getting a new one.

Export the certificate to a separate location. You can import it back after SBS restore.

I'm guessing I would only be able to do that if I still had it installed ?

OF course you can only backup what you have in your server. Whats wrong with your server may be we can help.

The server was slowing down once a day and the only way out was a reset, couldn't shut it down or restart.
No errors in the logs, lot's of research and tried removing software etc...
In the end I restored to an earlier date (before the Certificate was installed) and this has cured the slowdown problem, but the only place I now have the certificate is on backup.
So if I can't restore it then I guess I'll have to request a new one ?

That's what I needed to know, unfortunately it is not a self assigned cert and the only place it is is somewhere in IIS.
