  • Hi,


    While renewing existing certificate CSR, if we point existing key & export the CSR - will it generate CSR with existing private key

  • You can't generate private key with help of exiting CSR. I can suggest to choose below options.


    Option 1: Generate new CSR and share to CERT provider and get cert.


    Option 2: Check with Cert provider if they can consider exiting CSR(they have old csr) and share new Public Cert. Then replace exiting cert to new cert in F5.


    Note: Take backup before making any changes for Options2
