Used the EFA rename function, but did not recreate self-signed SSL

just as the title says, i cloned an EFA system, then used the rename function, but the self-signed SSL is still the cert-name of the old server.

is there a way i can re-generate the self-signed cert based on the new hostname?

EFA Monitor ALERT message

message is too generic, it should include the name of the server that sent it. here is the body of the message:

Service MailScanner down and restarted ( 1 attempts in past day, max attempts is 3 )

Please examine your EFA logs on altor.thought.org and resources to determine cause of failure.

i would like to see all yes/no decisions either be always capital, or always lower case. right now we have a mix of the two, and its difficult to memorize which one its going to be depending on what task i am performing :)
