Self-Signed Cert Disappearing In Exchange

Hello,

I am creating a self-signed cert via this method for use in Exchange 2010.  All goes well.  I complete the pending request in the EMC, get green checks, and then the cert completely disappears in the EMC.  Get-certificate in the EMS doesn't show it either.  I can see it in the cert store via the Certificates snap-in.  I've also tried creating a self-signed cert in IIS7 and it's not accessible in the EMC.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you.

Self Signed certs are not recommended for Exchange 2010, better buy cert from digicert and apply it.

Yeah, but....the cert is used for the Default receive connector (between Exchange servers) and you can't use a third party cert for that.  Or am I confused?

There must be a way to get a self-signed cert back.

To clarify - I DO have a third party cert also, but I need the internal cert also.

Do you see it at using Certificate MMC, Personal | Certificates

Get-certificate in the EMS doesn't show it either

Do you mean Get-ExchangeCertificate?

Not an issue that needs to have time spent on it any longer.
