SSL CSR Country Code Error

Hi,

We are trying to renew a SSL using IIS6. When we create a new request and enter the CSR details into the new request order, we receive an error saying 'CSR Country Code Invalid'. We have input the CSR into a decoder which has returned saying the Locality is missing, we have also generated a number of new CSR's from IIS6 and still receive the same error.

Does anyone know why this could be occurring?

Any help with this would be much appreciated. We are trying to process this through Open SRS and have been in touch with their support and seem to be going round in circles.

Thanks,
Yellowbus

UK (specifically England). We have tried using GB and UK as the country code.

GB is listed as the country code for the UK:

I would double check that there is no white space in the CSR.

Hi Dan,

I would give this process a try:

I believe the error has to do with the fact that the existing SSL cert is still on the server (expired or not).
