ACS Server certificate export

Unanswered Question

We are in the process of renewing a certificate for our ACS server (v3.2). Is there a way to export the certificate currently in use?

We don't want to lose it if we install a certificate that does not work. We are also exploring using a self-signed certificate, but we're not sure if that will meet our needs.

You just need to do a backup before install a new certificate.

The backup will include the certificate.

If something goes wrong with new certificate, you can restore the backup which will restore the certificate as well.

Thanks for the info...unfortunately, we tried doing the self-signed certificate, but clients couldn't connect to our wireless network (we use that to authenticate wireless users). We then tried to do a restore from a backup taken earlier this morning and it's still trying to restore - as if something is hung and won't shut down.

This is ACS 3.2 running on a Windows 2003 server.
