Here is a step by step by the excellent Paul Cunningham at ExchangeServerPro

http://exchangeserverpro.com/how-to-issue-a-san-certificate-to-exchange-server-2010-from-a-private-certificate-authority/

If this is a production Exchange server I would always recommend a certificate provided by a certificate authority such as digicert or GoDaddy etc. Yes they cost money, but are the way to go for Exchange and even more critical in Exchange 2013, so might be the ideal opportunity to think about it now rather than later

Just to echo above, using a self signed certificate authority is rarely worth the "saving" of a $60 SSL certificate. The major problem is getting the root certificate on to the various devices. Furthermore unless you control all machines connecting to Exchange (so no external OWA access for example) end users will get SSL warnings. Telling users to ignore SSL warnings isn't a good idea.
