Backup Exec server certificate expired

Can we give a try to renewing the certificates? I’ve copied the following from this article: Request or renew a certificate

  1. Open Certificate Manager by clicking the Start > Run , typing certmgr.msc into the Search box, and then pressing ENTER.‌  (Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.)
  2. Click the certificate you want to renew.
  3. Click the Action menu, point to All Tasks, and then do one of the following:
  • Click Renew Certificate with New Key.
  • Point to Advanced Operations, and then click Renew this certificate with the same key.

    4.Complete the wizard to renew the certificate.
