Unable to export private key

L.S.
The situation is: I've installed MS Cert.Services to issue 'local / private' certificates. This works: I'm able to request (and issue) 'my own' certificates through a webinterface. Now, according to MS, I need to install the certificate used by the Exchange-box (LAN) on my ISA-box in order to be able to publish OWA/RPCoverHTTP. However, when exporting to a file, I'm unable to include the private key of the certificate on the Exchange-box ('marked as non-exportable"), and so I'm not able to use this certificate on the ISA-box. When requesting the certificate (for a webserver) in the Cert.Services webinterfaces, I'm unable to choose the option "make private key exportable". This option is greyed out. So, how do I get a certicate with an exportable key, so I can use it on both Exchange and ISA-box?

thnx, cheers! BS

Are you running Windows 2003 certificate services? Are you running Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition?

check this out:
Enable the Mark keys as exportable Option with Windows 2003 Certificate Services
on citrix site
http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX106034

The default Certificate Server Templates do not mark the private keys as being exportable.

Hope this helps,
Mark

Yes! This the exact issue I ran into. I already used both discribed solutions to get an exportable key (works!). THNX!
