For Microsoft Exchange 2007

Problem: You have created a private key and CSR using the Exchange shell for a UCC type certificate.  You have imported the Entrust UC Certificate and attempt to export the keypair however, the private key is NOT exportable. Solution: Please recreate your keypair and CSR using the below the switches below: Example:

New-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest -SubjectName "c=US, o=Entrust Inc., cn=mail.entrust.com" -IncludeAcceptedDomains -DomainName mail1.entrust.com,mailsrvr,autodiscover.local.entrust.com -privatekeyexportable $true -Path c:\certificates\mail1.entrust.req
  • privatekeyexportable $true -- Allows the private key to be backed up. Works on production software only.
  • cn= is your common name
  • DomainName -- are the list of domains that you require

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