Hello,

A 2013 Workflow stopped working in my environment last Monday (10/12/2020) I noticed so I started doing some digging and actually found that a error/alert started 10/10/2020 with the following errors below:

Warning 10/10/2020 8:38:42 PM   CertificateServicesClient-AutoEnrollment    64  None

I'm guessing I just need to get the Cert renewed to get things back working but not sure what are the steps to get cert renewed on the Service Bus server. The Service Bus Gateway is configured on the web server currently. I am unable to remove the 2013 workflows or anything I'm guessing since the cert is expired it has somehow locked any kind of 2013 workflow functionality.

    To renew the certificate you need to change the change the time on your server to before the certificate expired date and then update the certificate, below article will help you to update/renew certificate.

    Here are the steps to renew an expired certificate for Service Bus for Windows Server farm certificate:

    1. Call Stop-SBFarm on one of the nodes in the farm.
    2. Install a new certificate on all Service Bus machines.
    3. Call the Set-SBCertificate cmdlet and run this cmdlet on one of the farm machines: Set-SBCertificate -FarmCertificateThumbprint $cert.Thumbprint -SkipKeyReEncryption
    4. Call the Update-SBHost cmdlet on all farm nodes.
    5. Call the Set-SBNamespace cmdlet and run this cmdlet on one of the farm machines: Set-SBNamespace -Name <namespace> -PrimarySymmetricKey <Base64 string>
    6. Call the Start-SBFarm cmdlet on one of the farm nodes.

    Detailed information can be found via this document: Service Bus Configuration How-to - How to renew an expired certificate.
