Unable to recreate SSL cert on VNXe3100

I have used the tech article number 000323922 – How to regenerate a default SSL certificate or replace an expired SSL certificate, but it’s not working. When I run the command svc_initial_config a f VNXeHOSTNAME n “New_IP_address subnet gateway”, I receive the error

Error: this system has already been initialized with the following configuration:

friendly name=FriendlyName

ip=IP_address subnet gateway

We are upgrading to a VNXe3200 in the next month but I would still like to be able to get my old 3100 added to the Unisphere Console so I can manage both from a single pane. I know the 3100 is going EOL next year but this would be a big timesaver if I could get this working. I am no longer under support with EMC for this device and paying the astronomical amount for one time support is out of the question, since we are deprecating the device anyway.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
