Hi! So, you can create the certificate request file with according the section "Create a local Certificate Signing Request (CSR)" at The resulting file will be the Tomcat equivalent of the "certreq.txt". Then, it can be signed and the the signed certificate can be imported.

I hope it helps!
Hi! You mean that you have a cerificate in ".pem" (x509) and you want it to convert ".pfx" (PKCS#12)?
You can use OpenSSL for the conversion. Find more details here: and

I have SA running  on win 2003 box and I can run command line certreq to create new certificate
certreq -attrib "CertificateTemplate:WebServer" -submit c:\certreq.txt
