SBS2011 Add a trusted certificate RRS feed

  • Question


    I have windows sbs2003/Exchange2003 running and will be retired. Currently I am setting and configuring a new windows sbs2011/Exchange 2010 to replace the old server. FRESH. Setup in isolated network.

    I am at Windows SBS 2011 Standard Console, Add a trusted certificate. Can I use the certificate that I export from windows2003 and import into windows 2011 ?

  • Technically: YES, if you also export and import the private key.  

    Practically: You'd need to make sure the subject name(s) on the existing certificate are still appropriate for your new design.  In a single-server environment, its likely fine.
