    Renewing a self-issued server certificate

    SBS 2003 R2 – the server certificate expires tomorrow, I’ve used CEICW to renew it, the wizard completed everything fine but nothing seems to have happen as the old certificate with the old date is still present. Do I need to remove the old certificate or will it now renew automatically tomorrow. Is a reboot required? Any thoughts much appreciated.

    Server, machine or user certificate?
    The server certificate will need to be regenerated but all others should auto-renew. Check that the server certificate has not reached its expiry date.

    cheers, Paul

    Renew, regenerate, same thing really, just depends where you got the certificate in the first place.
    If it's just an SSL certificate you can use them when they have expired, but the users will get a warning from their browser.

    cheers, Paul
