SBS 2008 Cert Renewal

Clients with SBS server 2008  and not using  a third party SSL certificate will have the default self-signed SSL certificate. By default the self-signed certificate is valid for two years, but how to you renew it without interrupting OWA, Outlook, and Exchange? When the certificate is expired, Outlook 2007/2010 will give you an error message when opening, that the certificate is not valid. Here are the steps to fix it.

1. Goto the Windows SBS Console, click on Network Tab, then Connectivity Tab
2. Click on the certificate icon, then click the “view certificate properties” in the right pane. In the General tab of the new window, it will show the dates that the self-signed certificate is valid for.
3. In the “Connectivity Tasks” area, click “setup your Internet address”, go through the wizard to renew your self-signed SSL certificate.
4. When you now check the certififcate properties, you will see that it is now valid for another two more years.
