need assistance in updating our ucc ssl certificate for ms sbs 2008 / exchange server 2007

I need some step by step instructions on how to renew our ucc certificate.

Our certificates are purchased from godaddy and I know how to get the certificate from them once we have the csr.

I need assistance in generating a new csr and then importing in the new certificate once I get it from Godaddy.

I have located the thumbprint from within the exchange console utility and the existing certificate that expired is sitting on the c: drive along with the .csr file.

SBS provides a wizard for this. Just run the "Add a Trusted Certificate" wizard from the SBS console under network | connectivity | highlight Certificate and choose option on the right.
The wizard will give your the option of "I want to renew my current trusted certificate with the same provider". Follow the wizard through, generating the new CSR, then select "my vendor requires more time (or similar)" which will put the process in a suspended state. When you receive/download your certificate re-run the wizard again and it will give you the option of canceling the renewal or install the new certificate. Once complete, if a GoDaddy certificate you also need to manually install the GoDaddy intermediate certificate as per their instructions.
