Trying to update a SSL certificate in Exchange 2010

Trying to update a SSL certificate from Godaddy in my Exchange Management Console. When I try and Launch the certificate or import it I cannot find the "complete Pending Certificates in the Action panel.

Can anyone help me out?

Import the certificate using EMS:

Import-ExchangeCertificate -FileData ([Byte[]]$(Get-Content -Path c:\certificates\IssuedCert.p7b -Encoding byte -ReadCount 0)) 

Open in new window


Get the thumbprint of the new Exchange certificate:

Get-ExchangeCertificate | FL

Open in new window



Enable the Exchange certificate for the appropriate services:

Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint insertthumbprinthere -Service IIS,SMTP,POP,IMAP

Open in new window


IIS = Client access services
POP = POP3
IMAP=IMAP4
SMTP = the EHLO name on the Send connector so Opportunistic TLS works.

Once you are done reset IIS:

IISRESET /NOFORCE

Open in new window

OK can you explain a little further where do the command in the windows above go in the Exchange Management System?

They are powershell commands in Exchange Management Shell. They are explained above, but basically you would just need to import the certificate (you need to fix the certificate path in the first command). Afterwards you would find the thumbprint of the SSL certificate (You should see the 3rd party vendor and a valid expiration date on the new SSL certificate, which is how you know that is the one) and then you need to enable it for the services. Once they are enabled you would restart IIS to make sure the SSL certificate is bound to the proper virtual directory.

Can I not use the Exchange Management system to enable the certificate?

If you do not see the import certificate function then I say something funky happened to that certificate. In theory if you import it as I denoted above, this is the best possible way to complete it.
