How do I generate a certificate signing request (CSR) in IIS 7.0?
Posted by on 22 July 2016 10:54 AM


Click Start, then Administrative Tools, then Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. 

Click on the server name. 

From the center menu, double-click the "Server Certificates" button in the "Security" section (it is near the bottom of the menu). 

Next, from the "Actions" menu (on the right), click on "Create Certificate Request." This will open the Request Certificate wizard. 

In the "Distinguished Name Properties" window, enter the information as follows: 
  • Common Name:
  • Organization: (Company name)
  • Organizational unit: (Company Department/Division)
  • City/locality:
  • State/province:
  • Country/region:
Click Next. 

In the "Cryptographic Service Provider Properties" window, leave both settings at their defaults (Microsoft RSA SChannel and 2048) and then click next. 

Enter a filename for your CSR file. Always place the CSR in C:\Certificates create the folder if it does not exist.  Always name the file (domainname).09-10.csr.txt.
