Cannot import certificate as CSP

Working through an issue with Exchange 2013 and the looping ECP/OWA. Appears to be a results of the certificate not being imported properly.  After exporting with the private and attempting to import with:

certutil -csp "Microsoft RSA SChannel Cryptographic Provider" -importpfx <path_to_cert>

Results in an error:

CertUtil: -importPFX command FAILED: 0x80090029 (-2146893783)
CertUtil: The requested operation is not supported.

You can check out this which stated
Cause for this issue was that there was additional permission for System on following folder: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys.

After  removing the permissions the issue no longer exists and the certificate can be imported and OWA is not looping anymore.
