How to create new csr before old certificate expires?

  • I have an existing certificate (GeoTrust QuickSSL) on FMS15 due to expire.
  • The existing certificate is no longer supported by FM so I bought a new, supported certificate (Comodo EV SSL).
  • Authorizing the new certificate can take up to 10 days.
  • Using the FM admin-console Create Request... command will overwrite the existing cStore files



  • I can't delete the existing certificate on a server that is in use until the new certificate is authorized and ready to be installed. How do I create a new csr using the Create Request... command without it deleting or overwriting the existing cStore files (i.e. the current certificate)?


Perhaps I am missing something obvious. Any advice is appreciated.


Thx in advance,
