I have a 2003 stand alone root CA whose issued certificates are going to expire on 11/19. This is a 32 bit 2003 enterprise OS. My questions are these.
1. If i renwen the CA certificate on this server will all the certificates issued by this server work anymore? Will I need to export the new cert (once the CA has been renewed) and deploy them via GPO ?
2. Can I do an in place upgrade of this server to 08 enterprise. Do a backup of the CA and then import the backup to a new (stand alone) system and then renew the CA and certificates that are out there on my users machines. The name of the server will remain the same.
