As I remember using IIS you can only create request file. Then you need to past its content on a CA web page and then it will be available to accept and issue within CA console.

Please view my guide, it should point you a direction

Hi Krzysztof,

Thanks for your prompt reply and the pdf file.

Note that I don't have a certsrv folder in the wwwroot path.

I have two previous security certificates that I have successfully installed previously without having to go the http://servername/certsrv route through the browser.

However something has changed since then so that the pending certificate request is not being displayed in IIS.

Hello,

The pending request option appears under the IIS6  however for the iis7 if you wont like to sign the cert from the TP you can create the self sign certificate.

Hi vaibhavjaiman,

Thanks for your input. A couple of points that you mentioned that I am not sure of:

1) pending request option appears under the IIS6"..." - If you are referring to the IIS 6.0 Manager, the only node I have under the server is SMTP.
2) "if you wont like to sign the cert from the TP..." - Not sure what TP is?
3) "self sign certificate" - I already have the certificate from RapidSSL.

My problem is that the CSR I generated is not list under Server Certificates so that when I want to complete the Certificate Request I get an error: "Cannot find the certificate request that is associated with this certificate file..."

Hello,

I was referring to complete IIS6 webserver ,as we got the option to complete pending certificate ,As in you case it is IIS7

2) "if you wont like to sign the cert from the TP..." - Not sure what TP is?
third party as RAPID SSL

As in your case ,creating the CSr never got listed under the server certificate list ,You just only need to complete the request by specifying the CER file ,As per your error ,Please visit the below URL which might help you to troubleshoot the issue

Hi vaibhavjaiman,

I have created the Certificate Request as per the link you have shown as well as tried to complete the request as is directed.

However it is failing as it doesn't see the certificate request that was created initially because it seems that it doesn't know it exists in the first place, even though the CSR was created on the server.
