Certificate does not show in Server Configuration --> Exchange certificate

I have problem with installing a renewed GoDaddy UCC SSL certificate.  After installing certificate and confirm that new certificate showed in certificate mmc Local Computer \personal\certificate, I check in Exchange 2010 management console --> Server configuration and it does not show there.

I reinstalled certificate again it still does not show in Exchange certificates panel.  The system log showed Exchanged certificate service client starts successfully.

When trying to import certificate again in Server Configuration --> Exchange Certificates, I get error "Cannot import certificate.  A certificate with the thumbprint... already exist"

I was able to install same GoDaddy UCC SSL certificate successfully in another IIS7 server.  The Exchange server is running on Windows server 2008 R2

Thanks

Yes, I followed to step 22.  I am stuck at step 23 because certificate does not showed up.

Are you changing the dropdown to All Files?

In the Open window, select All Files(*.*) as your file name extension, select your certificate (it might be saved as a .txt, .cer, or .crt), and then click Open.

Yes I passed that.  I believe select your certificate is step 12.  I can see certificate installed in mmc Local computer\personal\certificate.

I guess what you did was renew the certificate from godaddy, you can't do this you need to create a brand new one in exchange and issue a new CSR and then get the new certificate signed by godaddy as if it was the first certificate

Yes it is a brand new cer file from Godaddy.  With same file, I successfully installed on IIS7 server.  It's a wildcard UCC certificate.
