In Windows Azure I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 (Virtual Server).
To use the Backup feature in Azure I need to create a X.509 certificate. This can be made by using the MakeCert.exe tool.
Question 1: Can I create the certificate on my local computer, and upload the generated .cer file to the server? Or do I need to generate the certificate on the server where it shall be used?
Question 2: If the certificate has to to be created on the server I need to install the SDK. I see that Windows 8 SDK is reccomended for Windows Server 2012. Is Windows 8 SDK also reccomended for Windows Server 2008 R2?
