I was able to renew a self signing certificate on Exchange 2007 using the console, but I cannot make it trusted. The Exchange box is part of a domain, but the DC doesn't have SSL enabled so I'm working on the exchange box only. How do I add this cert to the trusted root cert authorities store?

I need to add the cert to the trusted root CA on the exchange server itself, not a workstation. I renewed the cert using the Exchange Management Shell on the Exchange box via "Get-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint "xxx" New-Exchangecertificate". I'm getting the "install this certificate in the trusted root certification authorities store" in the IIS Manager - Default Web Site Properties - View Certificate.

Just copy it from the installed location to the trusted root store.

To do so:

Launch MMC.
Add Certificates Snap-in for Local Computer.
Expand Certificates (Local Computer)
Expand Personal
Click Certificates folder
Right click on the self-signed cert and choose copy
Expand Trusted Root Certification Authorities
Right click Certificates folder (under Trusted Root...) and select Paste.
You will be prompted with a security warning. Verify the cert listed is the self-signed cert and click yes.
