I would like to know what the script is in exchange management shell to make a certificate request then install it.  My certificate was revoked by go daddy and they told me I needed to make a new request.  I cannot open the exchange management console because I get the message the page is not secure due to revoked certificate.  Im assuming there is a way to make this request and install via script.

Try

Set-Content -path ".\mail_publicdomain_com.txt" -Value (New-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest -KeySize 2048 -SubjectName "c=GB, s=Your-State, l=Your-City, o=Your-Org, ou=Your-Department, cn=mail.publicdomain.com" -DomainName autodiscover.publicdomain.com -PrivateKeyExportable $True)

Obviously replace the values with your own

Set-Content -path ".\exchange.toyoautoparts.com" -Value (New-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest -KeySize 2048 -SubjectName "c=GB, s=Kentucky, l=Franklin, o=Toyo Auto Parts USA Inc, ou=IT, cn=exchange.toyoautoparts.com" -DomainName autodiscover.toyoautoparts.com -PrivateKeyExportable $True)

This is what I tried and nothing happened.

Are you sure ?

Try

Set-Content -path "C:\mail_publicdomain_com.txt" -Value (New-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest -KeySize 2048 -SubjectName "c=GB, s=Your-State, l=Your-City, o=Your-Org, ou=Your-Department, cn=mail.publicdomain.com" -DomainName autodiscover.publicdomain.com -PrivateKeyExportable $True)

Then go to C:\mail_publicdomain_com.txt is the request there?

Peter thanks for your answer.  The request was indeed made and I was able to see it in pending status once I got the Exchange Admin Center working.  I guess I should have asked how to make the request and save the certificate request file so I could send that to my ssl vendor.  Thanks again for your input.
