If you are doing the renewal, just skip through the steps, putting as little information in as the wizard requires. It has no bearing on the end result. When you get to the end you can then adjust the host names that you need - that is important as the wizard puts in the root of the domain as the common name, but most people have host.example.com as the common name.

Then complete the wizard as normal and put it in to the GoDaddy system.
When you get it back, install the new intermediate certificate (it changed earlier this year) and then complete the request. You can then enable the services in the usual way.

Question?  My certificate will expire tommorow. Can I re-new it and if for some reason something screwed up does it remove my current one?

A renewal will leave the existing certificate in place.

It did.. I appreciate your quick responses. The only issue I had was not having the SMTP and IIS added. There was a PowerShell Script  ran that added those. I'm thinking now that I added it and everything still working I'm good to go. It now does list both certs with same name and 1 showing it is expiring tomorrow and the other the following year. Also the IIS was removed from current(soon to expire) cert and on the new one. All is working. I will add to this tomorrow when it officially expires

on March 18th 9:22am the current cert will expire. In the even log viewer I see (((((EVENT ID 12014 could not find a certificate that contains the domain name in the personal store on local computer))) from seeing this event I noticed that the personal cert is showing twice for the same name.

Not sure if I have to remove the cert about to expire to have it keep working.The other cert is there as well. Should I remove the old cert from exchange management console and verify it is removed from the certificate on local computer b/c of being in twice>>?Will my system stop sending/receiving emails? not sure what to excpect any help would be greatly appreciated.!!!

Thanks

First, you would need to create the CSR file, then upload the information to GoDaddy.com and create the certificate, then you can import the certificate to Exchange server and enable the certificate. While enabling certificate you can assign the service like below.

Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Server <ExchangeServerName> -Services 'IMAP, POP, IIS, SMTP' -Thumbprint 'EDF57B5F9D81F1EC329BFB77ADD4465B426A40FB'

Based on the Thumbprint you can enable your new certificate. Thanks.

Do I have to wait until old cert expires before deleting it? Should I do it ahead of time not sure if it will stop my email server from working until that time comes>?

For future reference, if you have an existing certificate on GoDaddy and do a renewal, then they will start the certificate from the point of request to the end date, plus the number of years bought.

So if you had a certificate that expired on June 1st, but did the renewal of a three year certificate on 10th May, then the new certificate would start on the 10th of May and expire on the June 1st in three years time. There is no need to wait until close to the expiry of the old certificate.
