CSR Request for ADFS 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to create a CSR for a new installation of ADFS.  Can someone point me in the right direction?  Seems it would be a nice option during the ADFS setup wizard. :)

    Thanks!

  • It is a good idea actually.

    So, when it comes to CSR, you can use this guidance: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/rmilne/2014/06/17/how-to-request-certificate-without-using-iis-or-exchange/

    But since you will certainly need a public cert for your TLS cert, you might actually get the guidance or even a tool from your certificate provider (DigiCert, GoDaddy to name only those have a wizard that guides you through the CSR generation process).

    Also, do not forget the SAN requirement: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/identity/ad-fs/overview/ad-fs-requirements#BKMK_1
