certreq -new = creates actual certificate on local machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to just generate .csr, but on W10 1809 it seems to actually generate the certificate itself in users store

    certreq -new in.inf out.csr
    Installed Certificate:
      Serial Number: 4f661f2fe13bcb83473b357e1637c1f8
      Subject: CN=************
      NotBefore: 11/08/2020 15:22
      NotAfter: 11/08/2021 15:42
      Thumbprint: 2327679ff389432b6a7a07f43dccbfde15aebd02
      Microsoft Strong Cryptographic Provider
    CertReq: Certificate Created and Installed

    Any idea what is wrong?

  • Silly me!

    Used in .inf

    RequestType = Cert

    So its dowe exactly that!
