On SBS 2008/2011 just re-run the configure youer internet address wizard and it will generate a new one.

No I meant the Internet Address wizard which is called "Set Up Your Internet Address" wizard located in the SBS console on the right under Network | Connectivity.

The "Fix My Network" in the same location should do it as well.

This assumes this is the delpoyable self signed certificate created by SBS used by RWA, OWA, etc.

It wants me to "run the connect to the internet" wizzard first, that wont run because it knows that the router is the DHCP address issuer. I cant risk doing this remotely so will have to go to site tomorrow.

I agree, it can be risky making network changes remotely.   I belive the wizard will run, but wrn about DHCP.  However, why is the router the DHCP server?

Rob, I have no reason to doubt you so have awarded the points, it didnt matter what I did I could not generate another Self Signed certificate. I bought one from Go Daddy who were very good on the support and it worked well

Very odd.  Personaly I always recommend a 3rd party certificate, especialy if you have smartphones, some will not even accept a self-signed cert.

Thanks Insideview, sorry I could not help you resolve.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?
