Exchange 2010 Certificate disappears after import

I'm trying to install a self signed cert for mail.domain.com on my ex2010 server and everytime I go to complete the process the cert just disappears.  I've tried 2 different CA's on my domain (both are standalone, not connected) and get the same results with both CA's.  I'm completely lost because I don't remember this happening the last time I installed a self signed cert.

I assume you are using the EMC? If so, have you tried the Shell instead?

Example from Microsoft:
New-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest -SubjectName "c=US, o=Woodgrove Bank, cn=mail1.woodgrovebank.com" -DomainName woodgrovebank.com, example.com -PrivateKeyExportable $true

Issue appeared to be with my CA.  Picked up a single domain SSL cert from Comodo on the cheap and everything is working flawlessly.
