I just installed windows 2012 Essentials on a server and I need to put in the address and general coordinates of our company (in order to generate a Certificate request) and cannot figure out where this is done from.

Hi JPD153,
Where are you trying to generate the CSR from exactly? Usually when generating a CSR it will prompt you for that information during generation - I do not believe it pulls from the server stored information (depending on how you're generating the CSR). Did you try generating a CSR already? Let me know in either case!

I was just following hte wizard from windows 2012 to generate the CER -
 When I sent it to Network solutions they told me that in the CER  the address was incomplete (needed street address, city and state).
How do I correct this ?

Hmmm let me load mine up and see where it's loading the information from, in the meantime:

If you have MS IIS installed you can use this to generate the CSR quick and easy while entering the information manually, this link provides instructions and screenshots to guide you through it:

(Just follow the steps up to the Enom screenshot of course as at that point you have the CSR file and would send to your provider)

If you have IIS and that works above let me know, in the meantime I'll boot up my SBS and see where the wizard is pulling information from!:)

The article looks promising. I certainly hope that the setup is the same in 2012 as it is 2011.
I will try this Monday and keep you posted.

Hey,
Yup that'll work perfect just gave it a shot, works the same in 2012:)

Also should be able to go into the SBS console and select "Add a Trusted Certificate" and run through that wizard selecting you want to buy a new certificate which will then ask to verify the certificate information where you can enter all that address/etc info and continue, it will then provide the CSR and then when you retrieve the certificate you can simply do the same thing, after generating in that way when you open 'Add a Trusted Certificate' it will say a request is in progress and give the option to enter the certificate. This method may be a bit easier but whatever works:)

Definitely, let me know if you run into any issues I'll keep an eye out, and good luck!
