Certificate doesn't appear on Exchange Console.

Hi, I have Exchange 2010 and requested a Certificate to Go Daddy. I received the certificate, completed the request but the it doesn't appear on the Console of Exchange. I also did a manual Install of it on the Certificates' Personal folder, but it still doesn't shows.

I noted that the certificate doesn't have a Private Key. If that is the cause, can I add a key to it? or is it better just to make a new Request?

I also made the request with the name "mail.mydomain.co.ao" but I did get "mydomain.co.ao" as result. Does that have any influence on the non-appearence of the Certificate in the Console?

Thanks.

you need to create a new request that includes the private key
exchange will not recognize a certificate that does not include it
did you use the exchange management console to generate the request?
The certificate needs to be installed on teh local-computer's CAPI store to appear there.

If you dont have the pvt. key
certutil -addstore my cert.crt
certutil -repairstore my "< >" (thumbprint value)

Requesting a new certificate was the solution.
