Creates a new task in the Task Scheduler that will be triggered when a certificate is replaced, expired, or about to expired.
New-CertificateNotificationTask [-RunTaskForExistingCertificates] -Channel <NotificationChannel> -Name <String> -PSScript <String> -Type <CertificateNotificationType>
[-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]
The New-CertificateNotificationTask cmdlet creates a new task in the Task Scheduler that will be triggered when a certificate is replaced or expires. The task will launch
the script specified by the PSScript parameter.
If the RunTaskForExistingCertificates parameter is specified, then after this cmdlet is registered, the cmdlet will go through all certificates (including archived
certificates) in the My store and initiate Replace events for all certificates with a Renewal property. The NewCertHash value will always be the one at the end of the
renewal chain. For example; if certificate A was renewed to certificate B, which was then renewed to certificate C, then the cmdlet fires two events: certificate A to
certificate C and certificate B to certificate C. This will ensure that applications that are still using old certificates are properly updated to the newest certificates.
If any certificate has a renewal chain longer than 20, then the certificate is not logged.
