Renew, Remove, or Replace exisiting SSL Certificate in SBS2003

Hi Experts,

I know this may be a "DUHH" question, but better to be safe than sorry....

I have a Register.com RapidSSL certificate installed on my SBS2003 server and it is now time to renew the certificate as it is expiring. The server is not hosting any website other than the usual SBS2003 faire - OWA, RWW, etc. According to Register.com Support, on their end, I cannot RENEW an SSL cert but rather purchase a new one - which means going through the whole CSR process on my SBS server again.

Now, when I start the Certificate Wizard, I'm asked if I want to Renew, Remove, Replace, Export to a .pfx file, or Copy/Move the cert to a remote server. Clearly I do not want the latter two choices, which leaves me with the first three. Not sure if I want to Replace or Renew. See the attached screenshot. I already have the certificate and it has been working just fine. Thoughts?

TIA!

I believe since Register is telling you that you cannot renew it, I'd chose the replace option...if you don't like what you're seeing on the screen, you should be able to cancel
