MDM code signing certificate renewal

When using the default self signed and code signing certificates in Lion (and ML) server, the certificate will need to be renewed annually.  Apple has documentation for the procedure up at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5358 but it’s slightly out of date: if you seek /usr/bin/certadmin on ML server, you won’t find it.  It’s moved into Server.app. Therefore, the path you want is:

/Applications/Server.app/Contents/ServerRoot/usr/sbin/certadmin

    After following these steps do you have to re-enrol devices in PM or do they continue to work?
