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.

Thanks,

TN

Follow these instructions to import the cert

And to assign the necessary services use this link (I recommend using EMS for this part)

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.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Once the certificate is installed following the first link then go to the EMS and type

Get-ExchangeCertficate

This will list all of the certificates installed and their thumbprint, including the old one no doubt

Then follow the second link to enable the exchange services you want the cert to handle

enable-exchangecertificate (thumbrint) -services (list the services that this cert will be responsible for)

If you want to remove your old certificate then run the

Get-ExchangeCertificate cmd to list out the thumbprints and then use the Remove- command
