Trouble installing new SSL certificate

We just set up an exchange 2007 server and all went well except the installation of our new ssl certificate. I was assigned the task after a co-worker got stuck. I opened IIS and deleted the pending request and I'm going to re-key the ssl cert (it's from godaddy) and start a new request. The problem is that after I run the whole new-exchangecertificate...etc I understand that I should open IIS and see a Pending Request that I can choose to Process or Delete. However, I never have a pending request I just have the standard options of "create new", "choose existing" and a few other options. Why isn't my Exchange Shell starting the request?

Well from what I understand the new-exchangecertificate command should generate a pending request that I see when I open IIS > Default Website > Properties > Directory Security > Certificate.

This is not happening.

Try restarting your IIS service and see if this has any effect.

While you do that, let me do some researching and see if I can find anything for you, unless someone else already knows the solution

Maybe I should rephrase my question slightly:

I understand how the process is supposed to work, but I can't get the command from the Exchange Shell to initiate a new certificate request in IIS. When I open IIS, it should ask if I want to proccess this request or delete it and do something else. THIS is the problem. I can't get the option to "process request".
