entire CA certificate will expire in a day time.

Dear Experts,

Looking into CA console I can see, all our certificate expire today, that includes top domain certificate and any other certificate that is been issued.  Just today our wireless users failed to authenticate and I am worried that by tomorrow even domain users that is connected through Ethernet cable may fail to login and authenticate.

How to renew existing CA certificate?
From google, it says you have to create new certificate.

- What is the process, do I have to create a new certificate for all expired ones, and by tomorrow, do you think users connected through Ethernet cable fail to authenticate?

- After creating new certificate, I assume the wireless access point should be updated with new certificate, is that correct?

I require your argent help

If your CA is expiring all giving certificates by that CA are expiring as well.
To renew your CA please follow this step by step.

Once the CA certificate is in place you need to re-validate all certificates. I assume you have a GPO in where you distribute the certificate to your clients so this should not be a big issue.
