Hello I got to renew my self signed Certificate. If I type in PS:

Get-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint 3675F5A4133020EF780FE | fl

I cut out a part of the Thumprint. I see that the cert is valid until the 06th of may.

If i want to renew that cert a say :

Get-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint “ 3675F5A4133020EF780FE ” | New-ExchangeCertificate

Now a new cert is created. If I want to enabled the ne cert a say :

Enable-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint “3DA55740509DBA19D1A43” -services IIS

The thumprint here is of course just a part of the thum of the new cert.

And then I say

Remove-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint “3675F5A4133020EF780FE ”

To Remove the old. Is there anything else I need to do?
