Certificate Authority

We have certificate authority installed on an Window 2003 server. We have received a request file (.req).

1. What's the step to load the file and generate the certificate using the GUI.
2. How to export the certificate and send it to the client
3. The root certificate on CA is nearly expired. How to regenerate it and send it to the client.

Hi,

Regarding your questions;

1) Open Certificates (Start>>run>>mmc>>Add/Remove snapin>>Add>>Select Certificates and add it. Expand Trusted Root Certification Authority>>Certificates>>Right click and select "All Tasks>>Import to import the certificates. Once you have imported the certificate, you can export it by selecting the appropriate certificates.

Yes, you can renew the root CA certificate by doing the following;

Start>>Administrative Tools>>Certification Authority>>Right click on the CA (I.e - Talisman)>>All Tasks>>Renew CA Certificate by following the wizard.

PS - You should do this before expiring the CA certificate, the certificate service won't start if the CA certificate has expired.

Sorry, can't follow it.

After receiving a request file from client (*.req), it should be accept the request, approve before generating a certificate. Correct ?

Once the certificate is approved and store in CA. How can I export the certificate to the client ?

Once I regenerate the CA certificate, where can I export the new CA certificate and send to the client ?

Is there any example to illustrate it ? Tks
