CSR\SSL Cert Question

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a new webservice with a url that I need to generate a csr for in IIS. However, the server for this hasn't been stood up for this yet.

Question: Does the server where the csr is generated need to be the same place as where the cert is installed? Or put another way, can I generate the csr on one box and expect the cert to install on another

I am assuming it needs to be the same box, but I am more or less double checking. Please note, I am not in any type of an export scenario here. This web serviceis brand new. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
