I'm setting up RRAS for a server and following the TechNet article listed here:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd637815(WS.10).aspx#bkmk_step3

After i published and installed the Certificate i opened the certificate MMC and tried to Export the key but the option was not available (though i'm certain i stipulated that it should be permitted when publishing). So i deleted the key, then revoked the certificate from the CA and attempted publishing a new one. Now, the certificate does not appear in the machine store after its installed.

my colleague has since informed me that best practice is to revoke the certificate first, then delete it. but at this point i cannot get it to install to the machine store. any suggestions?

Have you seen this article:

Does the event viewer have any informational events or warnings after you issue the iisreset.exe from the cmd line?

Foolishly, i had not done iisreset, only the certsvc reset. Thank you for the reminder.
