Tuesday, February 05, 2013 12:58 PMI cloned a server and made some changes to the server that was needed. The only problem I face is the certificate the new server has is a clone of the old one. How can I remove that old certificate and generate a new one? We do have a server that manages certificates but I am unable to generate one using the wizard in IIS.

Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet forums.
We need to request a new certificate from CA:

If you fully cloned a machine, it should be an exact copy of the original and you should not need a certificate. Are you running both clones or did you get rid of the old one? If you are running them both, then you need to go to the CA as mentioned by Kevin and get another certificate. If it's a self issued certificate, the re-run the certificate creation wizard.
Can you describe the scenarion in detail, why did you clone the machine, what is teh cert for and why do you need to generate a new one?
Did you sysprep the machine as well?
Wednesday, February 06, 2013 2:35 PMThe machine was cloned because it had similar settings that was needed. This was done to prevent completely rebuilding the server. I am embarrassed to say the problem is resolved due to the license server not having network connectivity. I am not sure how anything did not break in the environments. After connecting I was able to retrieve a certificate.
