Hello experts,

Im running a SBS2008 with exchange2007. Right now I like to add a selfsigned certificate to my IMAP,SMTP,IIS and POP Services.

I added the certificate with the following command:
New-Exchangecertificate ...
As soon as I like to enable this certificate to my services, I recieve an error:

The Certificate was not found.
The certificate was not found.

I allready verified if the thumb is correctly written....unfortunately Im stucked right now. pls help.


Thanks in advance

Best regards from GER

no you just created the certificate request, you still need to issue the certificate with your Certificate Authority and then install it back on exchange using the install-exchangecertificate

finally you can enable the certificate using the "new" thumbprint

what i mean is that your command didn't generate a self singed certificate, if this is what you want then remove the generaterequest and the path
