"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You will need to add the certificate server role on the machine.  CA if you don't already have one.

I need to add the certificate server even if I have a cert from a 3rd party?
You'll want this page then.


You'll use the certificate MMC plugin.

Thanks chinqmd. The link would have worked, but my internal domain is a valid public domain name so obviously, no 3rd party CA will give me a cert for it. I ended up having to install my own CA and generate the cert myself. Thanks for the help.
