SSl certificate for exchange 2013. Migration from sbs 2008. (exchange 2008)

I'm hoping someone can clear up some confusion I have on an SSL certificate issue. We're migrating from sbs 2008 to server 2012 standard and exchange 2013. Currently, we have an ssl cert from godaddy for companyweb.domain.com. That cert is good until 2015. I know I can export and import that cert into exchange 2012. Can I then just change the port forwards in my router to the new exchange 2013 server and be set to go? Do I need a new ssl for the new server? I'm hoping to continue using our current certificate until expiration, just not sure if I can, or exactly how to do it.

As long as required MS exchange hostnames (Common Name and SAN) are same at source and destination server, you can export certificates with private key and import to destination server.
You have not mentioned from which exchange version you are migrating to Exchange 2013
Anyways, just check URLs FQDN you required, if it all exists in certificate then you can use same certificate with export\import

save yourself a boatload of hassle and get it re-keyed using the sbs wizard.

I've submitted a re-key request with a new CSR from the exchange 2013 server. Should have it back in a day or so. Thanks.
