the solution would be to use a "self-signed cert", exchange always use one by default (the time you install it), so let's check if that one work. at least to enter the admin pane.

1. get all certs on the exchange server

To work with exchange module on a regular ps console do the following.
Open a regular powershell console  (this works as well if you run it as administrator)

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.SnapIn

Open in new window

and then use

Open in new window

Search for a name similar to the server (mail.domain.local) or something like that, copy the thumbprint

2 Assign the exchange services to that cert
- Copy the thumbprint from the previous step
- Run
Get-ExchangeCertificate -thumbprint <paste thumbprint here> | Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Services IIS,SMTP

Open in new window

3- Go to IIS and check the Bindings
 - For the Front End make sure that the Certificate is the one you selected
 - and for the backed, you should probably do a change in here since is not done automatically.
  - Reset iis (you can use the admin ps console and run "iisreset")

With after that reset, try to open the EAC and you should be able to do a new Request for the renewal of that cert
