generate a certificate on a windows 2008 server for exchange 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We installed CA on a windows 2008 member server. I would like to generate a certificate for our exchange 2007 server - we are installing OCS and it requires exchange to have a cert from a CA. [we will get one from an external CA at a later date]  First, I generated the cert request from exchange. When I go to the https://localhost/certsrv on the CA server and go to "request certificate / advanced certificate request / Submit a certificate request by using a base-64-encoded CMC or PKCS #10 file, or submit a renewal request by using a base-64-encoded PKCS #7 file" I need to choose a certificate base template - and I would imagine this template needs to be a web server template. I see how to create a template by right clicking on "web server" template in the CA template  snapin, and choose duplicate template / windows 2003 server - but am not sure how to configure this template.
    I would like to know if I am on the right track, and how to configure the template - thanks...

  • Hi,


    If you need to request a Web Server certificate, you can select the buildin Web Server certificate template on the web page and input the appropriate information. You don’t need to create a customize certificate template.


    The following article may help you request a certificate for OCS:


    Unified Communications Certificate Partners for Exchange 2007 and for Communications Server 2007



    If you need further assistance, I suggest that you post to the OCS forum:
