nenew certificate on a domain controller

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 ?

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

    It can be as you mentioned :

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


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