Generate a CSR with Microsoft IIS4

If you are generating a CSR for a renewal, do not use the renewal function of the key manager. See Renew with Microsoft IIS 4 .
Open the IIS key manager. Select WWW and Key/Create New Key...

A wizard opens. Select "Put the request in a file" and name the file to be created.

Define a password. Note it! You will need this password during the installation and later for the renewal. Select a key length, 2048 at least.

Then deploy the wizard. Enter, without using accent or the following characters: ! @ # $ % ^ * ( ) ~ ? > < & / \:
  • The organization name and the department (follow our instructions, see Obtain a server certificate) and the common name: the website name as it will be seen by webusers
  • The country, city and state

Finish the wizard.

Save the request in Computers/Commit changes now.

Make a backup copy with Keys/Export Key.../Backup File. Save the backup file outside the server with the key password.

Open the generated file and copy/paste its content in the request form, see Access an order form

If your IIS is not running in 128-bit, consult this page for the upgrade
