Hi Guys,
We are working on to get a new Verisign SAN Certificate for one of our exchange servers in one of our domain.
Need to verify something related to generating a SAN certificate.

We are using this command to generate the request file, where in we are including the SANs.

New-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest:$true -DomainName,,,, -PrivateKeyExportable:$true –keysize 1024 –subjectname “c=US o=XYZ Inc,” –Friendlyname -Path C:\certnew.req

Now the command runs fine and the request file is getting generated. The confusion we have is when we run the Get-ExchangeCertificate | fl command we get the following output

Along with my existing internal cert details, I am getting this :

AccessRules        : {System.Security.AccessControl.CryptoKeyAccessRule, System.Security.AccessControl.CryptoKeyAccessRule}
CertificateDomains : {}
HasPrivateKey      : True
IsSelfSigned       : True
Issuer             :, O=XYZ Inc., S=ABC, L=UYT, C=US
NotAfter           : 08.09.2011 01:42:45
NotBefore          : 07.09.2010 19:42:45
PublicKeySize      : 1024
RootCAType         : Unknown
SerialNumber       : 7xxxxx….xxxxxx….3
Services           : None
Status             : Invalid
Subject            :, O=XYZ Inc., S=ABC, L=UYT, C=US
Thumbprint         : Bxxxx….xxxxx….xxxxx….7

My only worry and cause of confusion here I sthat I am not seeing the SAN names in the CertificateDomains field.

Are we generating this certificate request correctly???
Shouldn’t the CertificateDomain show the SUN names too??

Please suggest and help.
