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
At line:1 char:27
+ 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?

thank you

Create the new cert request and once it is fulfilled, assign the appropriate services to it. Then you may delete the old one.
