Renew a certificate from a local CA when the issued cert is no longer showing.

While I was away on leave for three weeks a colleague uninstalled the local CA I created to service certificates for our OWA.

He later reinstalled the CA and selected to use the existing info. So the CA is back and named correctly.

However the certificate I used it to create to cert. our OWA has expired and when I went to renew it found there are now no certificates listed at all, issued, revoked or otherwise.

He did not specifically back up the CA before uninstalling it. I do not have any other backup for it.

Is there a way to get the originally issued cert. renewed by the CA?

Cheers.

I have requested the renewal through the web interface after generating the request in IIS and it seems to have worked.

The renewed cert. is now showing as in use for IIS and Exchange OWA is working through web browsers. But my iphone says it connection to the server failed and safari on the my iphone says it could not establish a secure connection.

Something is clearly not right...

windows mobiles are showing code 0x80072EFF

Which translates to can not connect to server.

This problem has moved on from the original and is no longer named/homed correctly.
