  • Hi Zakaria,


    If you want to renew self-signed certificate on Exchange 2007 SP2, you can follow these steps to achieve the goal:


    1.       Run Get-ExchangeCertificate | fl  and note down the Thumbprint of certificate.

    2.       Run  Get-ExchangeCertificate –Thumbprint “Thumbprint of certificate (which you note down)” | New-ExchangeCertificate.

    3.       Run this command Get-ExchangeCertificate –Thumbprint “Thumbprint of renewed certificate ”|FL to check whether the certificate is renewed.

    4.       If the certificate has been renewed, you need use this command to enable this renewed certificate for IIS:

    Enable-ExchangeCertificate –Thumbprint “the renewed certificate’s Thumbprint” –Services IIS

    5.       Verify all the services are working correctly after renewing and enabling the certificate.

    6.       Remove old certificate by running this command:

                   Remove-ExchangeCertificate –Thumbprint “Thumbprint of old certificate”
