Hi All,

We use 3rd party certificate on all of your servers including domain controller. The certificates on the domain controllers are about to expire and we have renewed the certificate.

Is there a process to import certificates on Domain controllers ? or its a simple as DC MMC -> certificate -> computer account -> Personal -> certificate -> Import ?

    Hi,

    You should import the new certificate in same store as old certificate.

    It can be as you mentioned :

    MMC -> certificate -> computer account -> Personal -> certificate
    

    Or

    MMC -> certificate -> services account--> Active Directory domainservices -> Personal -> certificate
    

    Please don't forget to mark helpful reply as answer
