Task Scheduler

The program sets up one scheduled task on the server to run daily at 9:00, running under the SYSTEM account. The scheduled task calls wacs.exe --renew --baseuri {baseuri}.

This checks for files ending with *.renewal.json in the ConfigPath (which is %programdata%\win-acme\ by default).

The task will renew all certificates older than 55 days (configurable via settings.config) or when changes in the target are detected, e.g. when a new binding has been added to an IIS website. Renewal happens using all the same settings as they were configured at setup time.

If you have or suspect problems with the scheduled task, it can be (re)created from the main menu.


Version 2.x cannot be used to renew certificates created with 1.9.x, but it can import them. You will find that option in the main menu. It's recommended to follow the upgrade steps for v1.9.5 and v1.9.9 first, if you haven't already done so.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
