Renewing Certificate on BranchCache Error

Problem:  Hosted Cache server's SSL certificate expired.  New certificate has a different thumbprint.  Error when linking the new certificate thumbprint to BranchCache server.

Error:  SSL Certificate add failed, Error: 183.  Cannot create a file when that file already exists.

Solution:  You cannot associate a new certificate to the BranchCache server until the old certificate information is deleted from HTTP.sys.  Use the following commands to correct the problem:

C:\Users\Administrator> netsh http delete sslcert ipport=
SSL Certificate successfully deleted 

Link the new certificate after the old certificate is deleted from HTTP.sys:

netsh http add sslcert ipport= certhash=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx appid={d673f5ee-a714-454d-8de2-492e4c1bd8f8}
