How To Renew a SSL Cert on Reporting Services

Recently I had to renew the SSL certificate on an SSRS instance. Although I had created them from scratch before I had never had to renew one on the fly.

There is not actually a lot of info out there about exactly how to do this.

Luckily to renew a certificate is a fairly straightforward operation.

  • Create and add the renewed certificate to the server. Or simply renew the cert if that is an option for you.
  • Go into Reporting Services configuration manager and reselect the certificate.
  • I would recommend doing this for both the web url and the report server url.
  • Test your reports and check the certificate in your browser to ensure it has updated.

If you have any issues binding the cert here is a link to an article that will show you how to delete the bindings for the old cert.
