Hi,

Can someone explain to me how to generate a certificate template for ConfigMgr SQL Server Identification Certificate and issue it from my root ca.

My sccm sql reporting services is using a self signed certificate and is reporting that its not trusted.

I want to install a ssl certificate from my root ca, but I cannot get reporting services to see the new certificate after I have installed it.

all self-signed certificates are untrusted.  Think about it.  If they were trusted then you could just create a certificate saying you were Microsoft, Citibank, or even irs.gov and no browser would complain.

If you want a trusted certificate, you need to spend money.

Using a certificate signed by an internal CA trusted by your domain should be fine.  You're already using that trust, internal to your domain... this would just be one more communication.  It would be self signed that would be untrusted, but even that's minutely better than having communication in the clear.

On the server with the SQL Reporting Services, start the 'Reporting Services Configuration Manager', connect to your reporting server instance, and select the 'Report Server Virtual Directory'... there should be a box to select SSL, and enter the certificate information.
(If you're using SQL 2012 RS, it'll under 'Web Service URL', then the 'advanced' tab...  and you can modify the SSL identities and bind a certificate.)
But the upshot is... all that configuration is done in the "SQL Server Reporting Services Configuration Manager' tool.
