Is the WMSVC Certificate considered an Exchange Certificate?

Catherine Jaszewski 716 Reputation points

I removed the WMSVC and recreated it. I used Web Management to assign the new ssl certificate and was able to start Web Management services.
However the certificate is not showing up in my Exchange Certificates (See below.) I tried to enable the certificate using Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint....But this command errors out because it wants to assign (or bind) IIS which I know is not correct. How do I import the WMVSC cert into my Exchange Certificates and\or do I need to? Please advise. Thank you,

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-ExchangeCertificate

    Hi @Catherine Jaszewski ,

    Great to see that you have figured it out! If you don't mind, would you please simply share your solution so that it can help others who read this topic? Thanks!

    By the way, I've tested in my lab and noticed that when the new WMSVC certificate was created via IIS > Server Certificates, it doesn't show up in EAC or in the output of the Get-ExchangeCertificate cmdlet. However, when I recreated the WMSVC certificate via the Exchange Admin Center, it can display in the EAC and also in the result of the Get-ExchangeCertificate cmdlet. Here's an article about the steps to recreate the certificate in the Exchange Admin Center:
    Web Management Service (WMSvc) could not be started: 2147483640
