Where is my private key? Exchange 2007

I was called in to help out a school that lost its exchange 2007 server.  we brought up a second one that detected the first one in AD so it came up as a second server in the org and copied over everything all nice and pretty like.  

The new server works.  mail flows.  everything is good except that we lost all of the mailboxes and there was no backup.  the school wasn't too upset and we moved forward with the new server and used adsiedit to wipe out references to the old one.

now comes the certificate work.

we have the certificate from godaddy and we can download it.  the problem is when I go into the shell to add the cert back, I'm getting an error that the private key is missing.  

I'm thinking the private key went away with the old server, and it was not backed up either.

so, I went to godaddy and downloaded the cert again, but all i have is the crt and the p7b files, neither of which contain private keys.

I'm thinking I need to generate a new CSR request to get a new private key.

Am I right or is there a workaround or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks

Cliff

Yes if you dont have the old files you can try to contact GoDaddy once and check but might be very possible you might have to go in with a New Cert
