Hello,

Just wondering if anyone has ever created a 2048 Certificate request on a Windows XP SP2 workstation running IIS 6. OUr application can use a standard CSR but we don't see the option in XP to add a another website to generate the CSR for 2048.

Any guidance is appreciated would be great.

Hi,

You only need a second site if you need your existing site to remain online while you upgrade. Replacing a SSL certificate is relatively a straight process and should only take about 10 minutes.  However,  unfortunately, your options are limited. This is the limit of XP.

Options:
1. Take the down time, remove, generate, replace.
2. Use another Server/XP host to temporarily generate the new CSR, and then EXPORT / IMPORT and REPLACE.

3. Use commandline certreq.exe

Hope it helps,

The use of command line certreq was very useful.
