Renew/Generate Cert request for expired self signed cert for Cisco ACS

Hello,
I have a set of expired certs issued from my windows domain CA. I can see these certs in my CA snap-in but renew is not an option in the actions menu. These certs are used by my cisco acs for wireless network auth. I need renew them but i am not sure how. When I go into the http://<serername>/certsrv/certrqad.asp, I only see the main CA cert available for download.
I also see in this URL a place where I could submit a certificate request. However I only know how to create a cert request when a cert is used within IIS, which these certs are not.  
I am just lost on this....HELP!

You cannot renew an expired cert. When a cert expires, you need to generate a new one.

Another option is to use an IIS server to generate the certificate request. Once the certificate is installed on the IIS server, you can export it.

Hello,

You should be able to go to http://<serername>/certsrv and click Request a certificate. Follow the wizard to generate a new certificate then download it when prompted.

Doing that only offers my root ca cert. Not the cert I need.
This also is not giving me a route to renewing the expired cert.

Cannot renew an expired cert. So I had to make a new one. But I needed a cert that would allow me to export the private key. I was using the web server template but that will not allow you to export the private key. Look here: New Cert Template
So I went all throught that got the cert I needed but then my network team gave me this link. Followed instructions and got the cert into ACS without any further process:
ACS cert renew
