Hi I am going to update certificate for F5.

The below is steps:

System ›› File Management : SSL Certificate List ›› click: abc.yahoo.com >> import(at bottom) >> Choose File >> click: Import

After these steps,

the certificate will be updated(new certificate would overwrite the old certificate). so we do not need to delete the old certificate.

the original key remain the same as before and still can work with the new certificate.

Any expert can confirm this? Thank you

Yes it can be override if importing a renewed certificate
Importing a renewed SSL certificate

When you import a renewed SSL certificate, you overwrite the existing certificate/key with the one you are importing. The SSL profile then automatically uses the renewed certificate to encrypt the SSL sessions.

Note: Existing connections continue to use the old SSL certificate until the connections complete, are renegotiated, or TMM is restarted.
