Understanding certificates RRS feed

  • Question

  • I inherited a small windows network - Server 2008R2.  I'm a SQL DBA forced to learn network admin.  We have a digicert certificate coming up for renewal.  I know what certificates are but I'm not sure what we use a CA certificate for in our small network.  Won't self signed/self generated certificates work for us?

  • first view the cert to see if it is self signed or if t came from your own cert authority, if from godaddy or similar you can renew with them, if self signed or from your own cert authority you should be able to renew. Godaddy or cert authority's are pretty good about helping you put a new/updated cert in place.
