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.

when you import the certificate using the console it will include the private key if it exists
you should be able to contact you ca with the new request, and have the original revoked at no additional cost

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.
