  • server certificate

    Hi All

    probably another simple question or something I have overlooked...

    I want to use a certificate to use ssl with outlook web mail, When I try to create the certificate in IIS admin tool (as per instructions on the Petri web site), the box for delayed or immediate request, I have the send request line greyed out, so I cant generate a certificate...

    any ideas

    Re: server certificate

    I'm not sure which Petri SSL article you're looking at but are you sure you have supplied all of the information required to generate/complete the certificate request?

      I was following the configure SSL on owa artical.

      http://www.petri.com/configure_ssl_on_owa.htm

      in step 8 I can only prepaire the request and send it later, the other option is greyed out,,,,how do I get this option up?

        Is your CA online and can you connect to it?

        can you browse to http://<CASERVER>/certsrv

          Sorry not 100% sure what you mean...

          this is how far the build has got
          win2k3 +sp2+ patches
          exchange 2003 enterprise +sp+ patches
          it all works, and no other configuration has been done

            Re: server certificate

            Sounds like you dont have a CA in the Enterprise:

            Check out the following (Ensure you don't have one first):

            http://www.petri.com/install_windows_server_2003_ca.htm

            If you get stuck let us know

            Thanks

              Yes, You are probably right

              I dont know why or how I over looked it, but thats why we have good sites like these to ask stupid questions and have another pair or eyes see the problem


              thanks

              problem solved

                  Yeah you need an Enterprise CA for this.
