Domain Controller with CA has some issues. Need guidance for a rebuild.

My plan was to back up the CA, demote and reinstall with the same name, promote and reinstall the CA role and then restore from backup of CA.  However, step one (backup CA) threw a warning that one of the private keys can't export.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!

PS The error from the backup attempt of the CA is:
Windows cannot backup one or more private keys because the CSP does not support key export
