Workflow Manager Server certificate expired, how to renew it? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We use Sharepoint 2013 and WorkFlow Manager 1.0. The certificate for the WorkFlow Manager farm has expired, and now I am not able to publish new workflows. The WorkFlow Manager configuration wizard does not open, and it logs an error in the windows' event logs related to certificates. Now I can see in the certificate snap-in that the certificate is expired.

    I do not know how to renew it, so I tried to configure a new certificate following the steps described in this link (http://www.harbar.net/articles/wfm3.aspx), but when I run Set-SBCertificate -FarmCertificateThumbprint $cert.Thumbprint -EncryptionCertificateThumbprint $cert.Thumbprint in PowerShell I receive the next error:

    I need to update-renew the expired certificate or configure a new one to solve this as soon as possible. What could I do?

    Reinstall the entire farm again for an expired certificate does not seem to be a good workaround, but I think I have to do it. What is the process to remove and reinstall the Workflow Manager?
