How do I create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) using Microsoft Exchange 2007?
Complete the following steps to create your CSR.
1. As administrator, open the Exchange Management Shell (Start > Exchange Management Shell).
Below is a sample command line that will help you create your CSR in the Exchange Management Shell.
New-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest -SubjectName "c=XX, o=COMPANY NAME, cn=WWW.XXXXX.XXX" -DomainName DOMAIN.NAME, DOMAIN.NAME2 -privatekeyexportable $true -Path c:\certReq.txt
2. Once you have your shell window open, type in your New-ExchangeCertificate command and press Enter.
If successful, this returns a thumbprint and then a flashing cursor.
3. Type exit to close your management shell.
4. Navigate to the path you provided in your CSR command (c:\certreq.txt) and open your text file to copy your certificate request.
This file contains the CSR you need to use on the Entrust Web site.
