Certificate Signing Request (CSR) Help
For Microsoft Exchange 2007


Complete the following steps to create your CSR.

1. As administrator, open the Exchange Management Shell ( Start > Exchange Management Shell ).



Below is a sample command line that will help you create your CSR in the Exchange Management Shell.

New-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest -SubjectName "c=XX, o=COMPANY NAME, cn= WWW .XXXXX.XXX" -DomainName DOMAIN.NAME, DOMAIN.NAME2 -privatekeyexportable $true -Path c:\certReq.txt

2. Once you have your shell window open, type in your New-ExchangeCertificate command and press Enter .



If successful, this returns a thumbprint and then a flashing cursor.

3. Type exit to close your management shell.

4. Navigate to the path you provided in your CSR command ( c:\certreq.txt) and open your text file to copy your certificate request.



This file contains the CSR you need to use on the Entrust Web site.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Entrust Certificate Services Support department for further assistance:
