This is using a MS Exchange 2007 server. The SSL issued by GeoTrust was found expired. I have generated the request file (CSR) by using new-exchangecertificate. Now I get the certificate (cer) from GeoTrust. After that, I ran the following command:

   import-exchangeCertificate -path c:\geotrust.cer | enable-exchangecertificate -services smtp

Now, when I ran the "get-exchangecertificate", I get the results as follows:


Thumbprint                                Services   Subject                  
----------                                --------   -------                  
202EF4798C28281D988F30D8E2E92AAE42CDC5E8  ...W.      CN=*.abc.com.sg...
3B59D8CBDCB03AF7118B77EFF3B639DAFFEC7A27  ....S      CN=VMISINXCH001          
6E6412458D74DB8FEBE80AA593143CA6CC90DD6B  IP...      CN=exchange.com.sg...
722A41089031A922F2CC234055997BF7165493A3  .....      CN=abc Asia, DC=so...

Thumbprint of "202EF..." is the new exchange cert, while "6E64..." is the existing but expired exchange cert. Even I ran
"Enable-exchangeCertificate -thumbprint 202E... -services imap,pop,iis, I can't bind (or move) the services to the now exchange cert, why? Do I have to remove the 606E exchange cert as the "IP" services would still bind with it?

Appreciate for your help.

Thanks,

Run
emove-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint 6E6412458D74DB8FEBE80AA593143CA6CC90DD6B

Then try binding the new cert again just to be safe.  

You should also run iisreset /noforce to ensure the new cert is picked up.

Do you have the intermediate certs installed on the server?

You should not have to remove the certificate; you should simply be able to bind the services you need to the cert.

Syntax according to technet could be:

Enable-exchangecertificate –services IIS, UM, SMTP –thumbprint D75305BEF8175570EB6E03BA6FF4372D05ACE39F4

While Rant is somewhat correct, I have indicated the need to reset IIS to pick up the new cert.

I provided the remove-cert command as there is no value in keeping expired certificates around to confuse the issue.

Agree with becraig.
1. Just create new CSR.
Please use this for easy CSR creation.
http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Exchange-20072010-and-2013-17a0b52f
2. Install the certificate and enable the services on the certificate
by the above command. You will get the thumbprint by the command "Get-Exchangecertificate"
3. Remove the expired certificate. you will see the expired certificate using command.
Get-Exchangecertificate | fl NotAfter, Notbefore, thumprint

Open in new window

Remove certificate using command
remove-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint "2342342342334234"

Open in new window
