Unable to export private key

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
1 Solution

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

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

Hope this helps,

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