SSL Installation appears to have stalled

Hi Experts,

I have installed an SSL into my exchange 2010 box however it won't let me assign services. I did a new request, fiddled with the req and re-keyed it into the supplier site and got the new SSL files in a zip.

Then ported the cert pk7 (? I can't quite remember) into the intermediate trusted folder as directed by go-daddy then when I go to complete the request it doesn't go any further or let me assign services to it.  The status still says "This is a pending certificate signing request (CSR).".

I have also run a cmd line that repairs the cert based on the thumb print. Still says its pending.

Any ideas and pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I have to ask.  You used the EAC to complete the pending request, right?

Understand that I am referencing Exchange 2013 but the experience has been consistent.

If so, there are many times in which I've had to re-create the cert request and re-submit the request to the trusted CA to issue a new cert.  Typically, it happens at least one time with every project where I go to complete a pending request and it fails--and remains in a pending state.  Personally, I dislike the EAC for doing anything cert related.  Try to use the shell as much as possible.

Also, use Digicert as a knowledge base for your cert questions.  IMO, they are phenomenal.

Hi,

Thanks for this. Turns out I forgot to set a friendly name and that was the entire issue. Once i set the friendly name it continued and completed.
Thanks
