We are running Secure Gateway 3.1 with SSL cert running fine with no issue.
Our SSL certificate authority is GoDaddy. It is now time to renew the SSL certificate so I have purchased renewal for another 2 years from GoDaddy.
GoDaddy asked me to generate CSR from my server and then paste the key into their website and then they will then send me the new/renewal certificate.
I have generated CSR from IIS 6.x and when i paste it on their website i get this error "The CSR key length must be 2048 or 4096"
I am now confused here when i go to the generate CSR "Server Certificate wizard" into my IIS it does not give me any option to select bit length beacuse i am not generating a new certificate on this server so it does not give me option for "request new certificate" because there is the existing certificate install so either it gives me option to "Renew the current certificate" or "Remove the current certificate" so for me it make sense to select "Renew the currently certificate" and then it create a text file called "certreq.txt" which i then option and copy and paste into Godaddy website but i get above error. What should i do here? any help will be appriciated.
I donot want to remove the current certificate as this is the live server and users are connected to this server. Can this renewal be seemless? Thanks
