How to recreate the default certificates for Exchange 2010

I accidentally deleted the default certificate from the Exchange 2010 MMC (Server Configuration, Exchange Certificates).  This is the cert that has the machine (netbios) name on it.  

How do I get it back? Is there a simple process to just recreate it? There are only 2 servers in this domain and neither is a cert server.

    Run the New-ExchangeCertificate cmdlet from the shell. It will recreate the self signed cert.
