SSL - Creating a CSR in Windows 2003

Creating the CSR IIS Windows 2003 or 2000 Server:

From Administrative Tools, run the Internet Services Manager. Right click on the website that needs SSL security and click "Properties". Click the "Directory Security" tab, and then click "Server Certificate" under the "Secure Communications" section.

When the wizard starts, press "Next", then choose "Create a new certificate" and press "Next" again. Choose "Prepare the request now, but send it later" and then press "Next". Enter a friendly name in the first field and select 1024 for the bit length. Leave any other boxes on this page unchecked.

Now, enter your organization's name. Please use the full, legal company name. Include a suffix such as "Inc" or "LLC" if applicable. For the organizational unit, you can specify a company department, or simply leave it as "Web". Press "Next".

Enter the web address of your server in the "Common Name" field. This needs to be the fully-qualified domain name of your site, such as www.securetrust.com or xramp.com. Do not include http:// or https://. Press "Next" when you are finished.

Now enter the country, state, and city where your company operates. Do not enter the location of the server unless your company operates in the same locality. Also, please spell out all state and city names. For example, if your company operates in Texas, use "Texas" rather than "TX". If you are an international customer in a country without states or provinces, please use your country name in the state field. Press "Next".

Choose a location to save the new CSR. Press "Next" and then "Finish".
