Do you really want to renew? Will re-enrollment not suffice? Are you worried
that customer may loose old certificate and keys? Will the old certificate
and key affect your operations?

What is the pros and cons for renew and re-enrollment

How do I do re-enrollment

I don't think users will loose the certificate too often, so I can revoke it if someone does

Re-enrollment is same as enrollment. So whatever mechanism you are using to
enroll today can be used as re-enrollment.

OK! But I need a way to notify the users to renew their certificates before they expire

If I buy a certificate from Verisign they will send me an email one month before the certificate expire. How can I do this

You will have to write your own custom tool to do this. If you are using
Microsoft CA, you may want to look at ICertView interface, that provides
access to the database. You can go through each entry in the database and
verify if the certificate is about to expire.
