    Hello,
    I’m using windows 2008 R2 Ent CA and i just renewed my exchange 2010 certificate and noticed i cant change how long the CA issues the cert for. Is there any way i can make it longer than two years?

    Thanks

    Yes, you can all you need to do is load the Certificate Templates console, select the Web Server template and select Duplicate (if you already have a duplicate, you can change the Validity period), then give it a new name and set the Validity period for longer e.g. 6 years.
