Remove and reinstall cert on Exchange 2010 server

Upon deploying my first Exch 2010 server, I made the mistake of putting the wrong type of certficate on there. I went with a single cert...while this is working for the one feature (webmail), I would like to 're do' and put the proper UCC certificate on there.

With older Exchanges, you could run the IIS 'wizard', remove the old cert and just re-run and install the new one.

Is it a more complicated process with Exch 2010? Some guidelines would be appreciated.

Will this remove/handle the existing certificate?

I just checked the first link, and I don't think that is what I am looking for. I won't be installing a previously exported cert, rather installing a brand new one. I am concerned about the existing certificate that is already there when doing this.
