Hello, I am trying to create a Windows Server 2008 domain certificate for a VPN connection.

When I'm adding a domain certificate through the server certificates in IIS manager, I get stuck on Online Certification Authority. I cannot fiqure out what my Certification Authority, The select button to select a certificate authority is greyed out. I've been searching online for a while now and cannot find anything.

    Do you not have an in-house Microsoft Certificate Authority installed?  The only way you can get an "online CA" to work is to have a Microsoft CA installed and running.  See for help with Certificate Services.

    I've seen some situations where if you *just* installed the CA, then the IIS server will need a reboot in order to see it.
