Lync Edge certificate import error

Posted on 2011-04-25

When importing the external public certificate for Lync edge, the import errs with this:
Import-CSCertificate -Path "X:\FileName.pfx" -PrivateKeyExportable $True -Password XXXXXX -Verbose -Report "C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Temp\1\Import-CSCertificate-ReportName.html"
Unexpected token ')' in expression or statement.

The certificate is from GoDaddy. I also called their support, and they don't have any info. I couldn't find much in my research either.

I found out that the ")" reffers to a character that was in the password included while adding the certificate private key. I re-exported the certificate using a new password and that allowed me to get past that error point. However, when I try to assign the commercial certificate to the  external adapter, the certificate is not listed in the next window. Only the internal certificates are listed.

Sorry, I didn't update this earlier. I found the solution shortly after the last posting. The commercial CA's intermediate certificate needed to be imported to the trusted root certificate store. Once I did that, the external certificate became avilable for assignment.
