Exchange 2010 certificates

I requested my cert (wildcard cert) via EMC, sent off to Verisign/Symantec and downloaded x509 approved cert, completed cert process by importing and assigning services across all cas hub servers - All looks well in EMC w/ green check marks beside the new extended cert w/ expiration date in year 2014 - (see attached screenshots)

BUT, when I run BPA, i get an alert reading "certificate expiry warning" - If I expand exclamation bang, it shows several URL's will not work b/c it is using the old cert, set to expire 6/8/2013 - This is reflected across ALL cas hub servers in the BPA report -

Did I miss something?? - I completed steps last evening, around 7:30pm and felt maybe some replication was involved, so checked again next day at 9:30am and it still shows errors -

Remove the old cert and make this one default.

So just right click old, and choose "Remove"?? - Am I required to do anything else? And, will this need to be done after hours, b/c it may cause a blip or reassociation w/ users?

It's always better to do it after hours. You can do it using EAC or:

Get-ExchangeCertificate | fl

Open in new window

copy the thumbprint of that certificate, then:
Remove-ExchangeCertificate –Thumbprint (paste the previous cert thumbprint) 

Open in new window

i believe EAC is Exchange 2013, I have Exchange 2010 w/ EMC - Via EMC, it appears all you have to do is right click and choose "Remove" -

Just weird, inside EMC it shows a blue check, making me believe Exchange is using that cert now, but BPA reports otherwise -

YES. EAC is Exchange 2013. You can use EMC to remove the cert.

A bit confused, if anyone can add any clarity -

BPA reports ssl cert expiring, using old date (see attachment in 1st post) - But if I try using http://www.digicert.com/help/ and plug in FQDN of server name used for our mobile devices it comes back w/ the correct renewal year of 2014 - Looks great!! But why does BPA reflect otherwise?

I am going to remove old cert next week, after hours next week - But a consultant is telling me it will require services to be restarted - Is this true?? -

No post I've seen talks about removing old cert and/or process will require restarting Exchange services -

Thanks to anyone who responds - SSL cert expires 6/8/13 so any help is greatly appreciated -

I don't think is necessary to restart the services after replacing the cert. I don't remember to restart the services after I replaced our cert.
