I am trying to install a SSL cert on IIS I created the certificate request and sent it off. When I got it back and I tried to install it get the following error message. "Cannot find the certificate request associated with this certificate file. A certificate request must be completed on the computer where it was created." I found the following microsoft document  http://support.microsoft.com/?id=931204

I am not sure how to create the request in the Base64-encoding. There doesn't seem to be an option in the wizard to select the type of request.

I assume that I will have to have the certificate reissued but I what to make sure and get it right because that is going to be a pain.

Thanks!

Thanks for the great articles Legend. However, this process seems to be a lot more in-depth than it was IIS6 to create a certificate request for an owa website. Is there a proper template to select for trying to get an owa cert going?

Are you installing SSL cert on two servers?  
Process is :
1) Generate a CSR. It will be a txt file.
2) Submit it at your SSL provider.
3) Get SSL certificate.
4) Import SSL certificate on server using Certificate wizard via mmc.
5) Map the new SSL cert from IIS -> website -> dir security -> Certificate.
Case will be different if you are installing SSL on 2 servers.

I am trying to get a single cert for a single server. It will be for our OWA page. Here is a page that shows how I created the request.
