I have assigned new  ssl cert installed on our exchange, for some reason windows 10 tablets are having issues.

we want old cert to be extended , it has been issued by our internal CA.
 CAN we EXTEND IT for one year ? with private key

also if we extend it and some thing goes wrong , can we reuse the old cert back again if we take a back up which we are extending having original dates. or cert itself will change and cant reuse the old one

for ex.

if we extend  the current cert1 having expiry in dec 2016 to dec 2017 and something goes wrong

can we resue the old cert having expiry  which was till dec 2016

Option A renew's the existing certificate but creates a new key. Option B get's you a new certificate with the same key and Option C renew's the cert with the same key.

I thought you already installed the new certificate? What is the error message? What version of exchange are you on. Need this information in order to help.
