How do I renew a OWA Exchange 2007 Certificate

I'm fairly new to Exchange 2007 and have never done certificate renewals on it.  My OWA certificate is expiring next week.  This certificate isn't for any other services.....just OWA!

We use VeriSign certs and use 3 separate ones:  pop.company.com; imap.company.com; webmail.company.com

Again, I only need to renew the webmail.company.com.  We aren't using a certificate for AutoDiscover (rather, we used a SRV record in DNS).

I'm trying to figure out how to properly request the certificate using the Exchange Shell (by the way...can't I just request it the old fashion way in IIS since this is just for OWA???).

Anyway...anyone know the Shell cmd to generate a request for OWA only?  I'm new to PowerShell so I may ask for clarification.  -- Thanks!

I'm working with exchange 2003 and OWA, but I think you need to do your certificates for IIS on the exchange box.

There is a wizard for creating the request to provide the data to your certificate authority, and a wizard for installing it.  It's relatively easy.

Good luck.

Ah....I wish it was still the same!  In Exchange 2007, you have to request, import, and then enable your certs via the Exchange Shell.  I found this link which has been very helpful:  http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2007/07/02/445698.aspx

I'll update this after I finish up.  Just in case there are any gotchas......
