Self Generated certificate validity issue in ACS 4.0 for Windows

Hi,

Is there any solution to extend the validity time of self generated certificate on ACS, by default the validity is set for one year.

As the server certificate on one of the ACS which is CA has expired and need to renew it.

Is it possible only one certificate from third party can be used both as a server certificate and certificate from CA for other ACS servers.

Thanks in Advance

Regards,

Ahmed

There is no way to extend the life of the self generated certificate. The best solution is to buy in a proper certificate from an online CA. We normally use RapidSSL (www.rapidssl.com). The whole process takes a few minutes and a 5 year cert is about $300 (I think).

Other solution would be to create an in house(Microsoft probably) CA, and get a certificate for your ACS server. Go through the installation steps of Microsoft CA before, as the validity date for Server Certificate(i guess) is configured during initial install of CA.

Prem
