SSL renewal issue

I have an WinSBS server that resides behind a firewall with a 192.168.1.x address.  The external hostname is remote.server.com, which port forwards email and IIS.  Recently, the company changed the external hostname to email.newhost.com.

When it came time to renew the SSL certificates for Exchange/IIS, a new SSL cert was created using the new hostname.  Although the certificate successfully installed, none of the services (POP, IMAP, IIS, SMTP) bound to the new cert.  They are still bound to the old cert, which uses the old hostname.

I believe this is related to the external hostname switch over, but am not sure how to resolve it.  Will either of the following resolve the issue?

1) Add email.newhost.com to the server's DNS so that email.newhost.com will resolve as the server's 192.168.1.x iP

2) Have a new SSL certificate issued, and add remote.server.com as a legacy domain

Thank you

Have you run the "fix my Network" wizard to make the changes  ?

Also you can run the following command from the shell to bind the certificate:

Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint <thumbprint of new certificate> -Services POP,IMAP,SMTP,IIS

To get the thumbprint for the above command you can run from a powershell window:
gci cert:\LocalMachine\My | ft thumbprint,subject,notafter

I am assuming at this point everything has been updated to ensure your service works as expected with your new domain.

@becraig: The only change occurred on the registrar website.  They confirmed that all of the services worked correctly, but as far as I'm aware, no changes were made on the server itself.  Is there anything I check?

I was able to resolve this with the following steps:

1) Open the Windows SBS -> Network

2) Click Fix My Network (as becraig mentioned)

3) Click Setup your Internet Address wizard (it was still pointing to the old hostname)

4) Click Add a trusted certificate (the internet address wizard removed the expired cert. and assigned a self-signed one)
