I have to "replace" the existing server certificate.  When I go to generate the CRS I no longer have a create option.  I only have options to renew, replace or remove. The create option is not there.  I need to create a new CSR and make sure the existing certificate stays intact until I actually install the new one.  Did not have this problem with IIS 7.0 it still had the create new option.

Can anyone tell me how to get to this or do this without messing up the existing certifiacate.

Simply create a dummy site and generate the new csr.

Once you have gotten the new certificate:
1. Import to the certificate store
2. Export a copy (with private key) to pfx
3. Replace the certificate on the current site with the new one
4. Perform IISRESET /noforce
5. Delete the temporary site you created
6. Delete the old certificate once you have tested connectivity with the new one.
