People,

I'm running Windows Server 2008 R2 for all of my Exchange Server 2010 SP3 with Windows NLB for the HT/CAS server.

Can someone please guide me in how to export the current SSL certificate that is used by Exchange Server 2010 CAS role with its private key ?

The reason to do this isthat I need to import the exact same SSL certificate to the new hardware load balancer appliance before dissolving or breaking the Windows NLB cluster for 2 Nodes HT/CAS server array.

Thanks.

Wishing the Exchange Management console navigate to Server Configuration then select a server. Then on the right hand side action pane click export certificate and follow the wizard. This doesn't impact exchange in anyway it just takes a copy of the cert including all the keys
