How do I renew my STARTTLS certificate?
Posted on 2011-03-07
The TLS certificate on my hub transports is about to expire soon. I inadvertently ran the command below without the -whatif parameter and generated a new cert on one of my two hubs. I noticed that the issuer is different than the current one cert. I tried to remove it but I got an error
remove-exchangecertificate -thumbprint CFE500CCA6CC282E4E881E1EECEB9CCC3DD36E0B
Remove-ExchangeCertificate : The internal transport certificate cannot be removed because that would cause the Microsof
t Exchange Transport service to stop. To replace the internal transport certificate, create a new certificate. The new
certificate will automatically become the internal transport certificate. You can then remove the existing certificate.
Parameter name: Thumbprint

+ remove-exchangecertificate <<<< -thumbprint CFE500CCA6CC282E4E881E1EECEB9CCC3DD36E0B
Will this cause a problem or can I simply create a new cert with the proper issuer informnation and then delete this one?
