I have a single Server 2008 Rs Enterprise.  It's running Exchange 2010 Enterprise.  This morning I received a message in the event log that there was no certificate for to be found.  So, loaded with my new knowledge of certificates, I went to work.

I went in the EMC and created the cert req using the friendly name of  This action created a req file on my desktop.  

I then went into https://localhost/certsrv and pasted the encrypted key into the web page and proceeded to create my cer.

I then went back to my EMC and completed the req using the cer file I now have.

As soon as I did that, my cert disappeared from my EMC and I can't find it nor can I confirm if it's installed and running now.

HELP!  :)

Seriously, what's going on?
