Self SSL On Exchange

Hi

I have an exchange 2003 server that has a self ssl cert installed. I want to remove it completely and install a paid for cert from rapid ssl.

Anyone know how to remove a self ssl without upsetting everything?

There is an article here on how to apply an SSL certificate to Exchange 2003: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/SSL-Enabling-OWA-2003-Using-Free-3rdParty-Certificate.html

removing is fairly straight forward and if you generate your request whilst your existing certificate is in use then you litterally just change the certificate that is being used and the disruption is minimised to the time it takes to change the certificate in IIS

You will have a period of time that you don't have an SSL certificate installed because you will have to remove the existing certificate to request a new one and if the 3rd Party takes a while to verify your domain details before issuing you the new certificate, this may cause you problems, so I would plan to do this when there is as little impact on the users as physically possible.

Prepare for your VMware VCP6-DCV exam.

Josh Coen and Jason Langer have prepared the latest edition of VCP study guide. Both authors have been working in the IT field for more than a decade, and both hold VMware certifications. This 163-page guide covers all 10 of the exam blueprint sections.

 
Alan HardistyCommented:
IIS - right-click the default website and go to properties.  From there, click on the directory security tab, then on the Server Certificate button> Next>  choose Remove the current Certificate.
Then repeat the process, but instead of remove, create a new request to prepare it now but submit it later and then follow Glen's link (demazter) for the rest of the instructions.
