I have never been involved with an incident where a VeriSign certificate was not valid because of the *ADMIN instance of the Web server was stopped and restarted. If you import the certificate to DCM, assign it to the TELNET server and it is not valid when the SSL connection is attempted, I would call up VeriSign, tell them what happened and ask that you be allowed to submit a new CSR free of charge.
