SSL Cert import to Exchange 2010

Hello,

I'm having trouble importing a 123-reg wildcard cert into a exchange 2010 server running on a Windows 2012 server, it imports the cert OK but then show its status as Pending.

When I look at the cert properties it states "This CA Root certificate is not trusted because it is not in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store."

it also incorrectly states the valid from and until dates, which should be 5 years - it shows it to be only one year.

the CSR used to generate this cert was created from the Exchange management console - not from IIS, is this the correct method?

I have added the intermediate certificate provided by 123-reg.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

unfortunately this is the process I've followed to the letter and although it initially completed without error, the cert was stuck with a status of "this is pending certificate signing request" If I try and re-import the cert I get an error that the cert already exists.

This is a wildcard certificate but that shouldn't matter as Exch 2010 support them now.

I've checked the cert issued with http://redkestrel.co.uk/products/decoder/ and they have the correct details.

help, this is very frustrating :) many thanks

I found the solution, I had to open the .cer file and press install certificate from windows explorer before Exchange would allow it to be installed.

I found the solution myself, there was an additional step to install the ceret, I had to open the .cer file and press install certificate from windows explorer before Exchange would allow it to be installed.

I expect this is because i'm running Exchange 2010 on Windows 2012.
