How do I backup the private key in ACS SE. I already have the public key certified by a comercial CA and don't want to waste money spent in buying the certificate. Reason I want to backup because I am getting following error on the console and the services have stopped.

Can I use the backup feature? Will it also backup the private key?
Unfortunately, there is no way to really export just the private key and certificate,
which can be reimported into the ACS. There has been a feature request regarding this
feature, in order to allow the export of private keys and certificates for backup purposes. The Bug ID is: CSCed14965.
However, what you can do is perform a backup of the database. This will save the registry
that includes the certificate and the private key. Then you can restore this backup file
on a new machine and choose to restore the System Configuration part. This will restore
the certificate and private key into the ACS Certificate page.
Hope that helps
