Export Certificate with private key

Last Modified: 2015-03-06
Hi Experts,

Windows Server 2008 R2 Certificate Authority
device: LANTIME M200

I need to install certificate on LANTIME(NTP) device. Device requires a certificate containing private key. This certificate must be in PEM file format.

I have created a duplicate template from existing webserver template with "Allow private key to export" option in the CA. The issue is requesting a certificate with a private key,  I tried requesting using http://aba/certsrv, and it issues me only on two format .DER or Base 64 encoded.  When I try to export from with the CA, I don't get an option " yes, export the private key"  and on the export file format " Personal Information Exchange - PKCS#12(.PFX)" is greyed out".

Please let me know what am doing wrong. I would appreciate if you could provide me the instructions to properly request or export a certificate with private key .
