HI, my customers self signed certificate has run out and I need to renew it "quick"
I have been following this video http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2010/management-administration/video-certificate-wizard-Exchange-2010.html
BUT when I get to running the http://localhost/certsrv I get the dreded 404 error so I cant get any further, I have checked that the folder C:\Windows\System32\CertSrv\CertEnroll exists and there are 3 files in it. Can someone tell me how to get past this point please! Thanks

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.
