Certificate button greyed out under Access tab for POP3 Virtual Server

I need to enable SSL for POP3 & IMAP
I have 2 exchange 2003 nodes on in a clustered environment.
I've installed a self signed certificate on each node via SelfSSL.
I opened the System Manager
I went into Properties for the Default POP3 Virtual Server
I clicked the Access tab.
Documentation I've found says to click the certificate button in the "Secure Communication" section.
The Certificate button is greyed out, and so is the Communication button.

Why are these greyed out?

You have to be logged onto that server either directly or remote desktop. You can be using ESM on another machine to do certificates.

Right you are.  I just figured that out last night.  I was using ESM from the domain controller.  I found that if I used ESM on the active node, that the certificate button was then available.
