    I have a Win2003 server that has the Certification Authority installed on it
    that I want to rename. It was originally named for its primary function
    (Exchange) but exchange is now on another server. I would like to transfer
    the Cert. Authority to another server (with a different name) so I can change
    the name of the original exchange server.

    Any way I can do this? I've found guides on how to do it but they seem to
    assume that the server you're transferring the authority to will have the
    same name as the original server.

  2. Hi,

    This cannot be done without invalidating all issued certificates.

    Hope this helps,
