Create IIS certificate with multiple common names
Posted on 2007-10-17
We are setting up our IIS-servers with certificates on our front-end exchange 2003-server. This front-end server is acting as webmail, imap and smtp-server. It has a GlobalSign-certificate registered as webmail.ua.ac.be and it is working fine. But now we want to use an alias for this server (imap.ua.ac.be) to be used by our imap-clients. This alias works, but it gives a warning (as expected), that the name in the certificate is not the same als the name the client is using to access the server. This can be resolved by a wildchart-certificate, but we don't want to use this kind of certificate. A second solution is to use a certificate with 2 or 3 common names (1 primary and a few additional alternate names). Getting such a request signed is not a problem, but how should I create the request from within IIS Config Panel? In this utility, you can only use one common name or a wildchart, but I need to configure 2 or 3 common names. Is there a way to manually create a CSR, get it signed and afterwords import it into IIS?
