I need to replace an existing SSL certifiacte to resolve certificate errors. It has the same name as the existing enabled certificate. When I run the Import-ExchangeCertificate cmd, I get an error Cannot import as there already is a certificate wi
th a thumbprint of 1CCD77D28F9664E6AC6A0E72B866C064D8D774D
When I try to remove the existing certificate, get this error
Remove-ExchangeCertificate : The internal transport certificate cannot be remov
ed because that would cause the Microsoft Exchange Transport service to stop

What would be the proper cmd sequence to complete this task?

I would recommend a handy free 3rd party utility I found that will manage SL certificates for you.

The certificate you are trying to remove is internal self-signed certificate which is required for transport service to run.

You can run new-exchangecertificate cmdlet to get a new self-signed certificate.

Moreover, what are the error messages related to certificate and is it impacting mail flow ?

Dell Support worked with me to remove and setup the SSL certificate.
