Certificate procedure – Step 2: Creating a certificate

Now that our request is created and since we’ll be creating the certificate ourselves, let’s just get it over with … :)

1. Copy the text file to your CA, go to the CA website: http://localhost/certsrv and select Request a Certificate

2. Select Advanced Certificate Request

3. Here, choose the second option (I’m not gonna write that whole thing out :))

4. Now we can copy the text from our request file and paste it here.

5. You will see that your certificate is pending after having clicked Submit

And that’s it, nothing more to this simple step. Next we’ll be issuing our pending request.
