Procedure for requesting an x.509 federation certificate from a CA? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to federate our Exchange 2010 environment with another company that is also running Exchange 2010 and I'm a little confused. After reading through TechNet and some other resources it looks like I need to get a x.509 certificate from a 3rd party CA trusted by Windows Live Domain Services. When I go through the wizard in the EMC to generate a new CSR and check off "Use this Certificate for Federated Delegation" I end up with a self signed certificate. What is the procedure for obtaining the certificate when I don't have a CSR to present to our CA?

    Thanks in advance,
