ADFS 3.0 Service won't start because certificate has expired

Hi,

I have a fairly urgent issue with ADFS service not starting.

The infrastructure is all Server 2019 and the service account password had expired so the ADFS could not auto renew the token signing and decrypting certificate. I know, I should have set the service account password to never expire. My fault.

Right now the service will not start (because the certificate has expired) and powershell commands come up with a communication error:

get-adfsproperties : The communication object, System.ServiceModel.Channels.ServiceChannel, cannot be used for communication because it is in the Faulted state.

I have tried the command "Update-AdfsCertificate -CertificateType Token-Decrypting -Urgent" but that comes up with the same error. As the service will not start I cannot get into the console.

Please help.
