Exchange 2010 - 3 Party Certificate Import Fails - Invalid for Exchange Server usage

I have purchased a UCC certificate from GoDaddy and have followed their procedure for creating and installing certificates.  Originally I used a wildcard certificate, but changed to UCC last night.

Now when I finish the import process for the new certificate I get an error stating - Invalid for Exchange Server usage

In the event viewer MSEchange Management I see the following error:

 Import-ExchangeCertificate
   {Server=EXCHANGE, FileData={Parameter value is too large.}}

Any direction would be appreciated. This is my first post, so please ask if you need additional information.

Thanks!

Did you generate the certificate request with powershell in Exchange?

No I did not.  I am new to Windows / Exchange Powershell, comming from Linux background.

Is it better to perform the sequence strictly from the Powershell?

I found the error of my ways after 3 days..

I was running the mmc as local user not local computer, so I was not installing the immediate certificates in the root folders.

Thanks for the help everyone....  still learning here.
