SBS 2008 Self issued certificate renewal.

We have been running an SBS server 2008 for a few years now. We have recently found that the self issued certificate has now expired. I have looked into how to renew this and have found that you need to run the Internet Address wizard. I am reluctant to run this as I am not sure what this will change. So my question is:

What will this wizard change? I only want the certificate renewed.

We have lots of settings in exchange that we do not want altering. I am wondering if the wizard will remove some of these settings. for example specific send connectors and email address policies etc. We have lots of email domains we use.

Can somebody guide me through the process of renewing the Certificate?

Run the wizard, select I already have a domain
select I want to manage it myself
when you get to the box to enter your domain name, just enterd domainname.com (whatever yours is)
if the URL you use for RWW or OWA is other than remote.domainname.com, click on the "Advanced" link under the text box where you enter the domain name and verify that the correct host name (mail, remote, or whatever you use) is there, and then complete the wizard

Assuming you enter all the same information as before, nothing will change in exchange

Ok thanks. That is what I thought. Have you actually done this? so you know it works?

I do not trust these wizards. I like to know what it is actually doing.

Do you know what the wizard changes in the background?
