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".

For Citrix NetScaler, I need .pfx SSL certificate. But I received .cer SSL file. To convert this CER file to PFX, I have followed below process.
Opened Certificate MMC --> Imported the CER file in PERSONAL\Certificate --> Export
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 suggest.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can you double click installed certificate in mmc and check general tab?
There can you see "you have associated private key with this certificate"
I guess not because u don't have private key on this machine where you have installed certificate
U must install cert on machine from where you made request because certificate private key remain with that machine
Once you install cert there, you should get option to export in pfx with exportable private key

As the expert advice, below has the screen run-through. Can also check out the last resort troubleshooting tactic.

https://www.sslsupportdesk.com/troubleshooting-missing-ssl-private-key-in-windows-server/

If your imported SSL certificate and it does not state you have a private key then your private key was either corrupted or never generated on this system. You will have to start from scratch generating a new CSR > Perform a reissue of the SSL Certificate > then perform SSL Certificate installation.

Finally resolved the issue.
1. I have to import or install the CER on the same server.. where I have created the CSR.
2. Then I can export as .pfx.
