Windows Server 2012 - IIS 8 SSL Certificate CSR Creation

How to create a CSR on Windows Server 2012 - IIS 8

  1. From the Start screen, click or search for Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and open it.

  2. Click on the server name.

  3. From the center menu, double-click the "Server Certificates" button in the "IIS" section (it is in the middle of the menu).

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

  5. In the "Distinguished Name Properties" window, enter the information as follows:

    Common Name - The name through which the certificate will be accessed (usually the fully-qualified domain name, e.g., www.domain.com or mail.domain.com).

    Organization - The legally registered name of your organization/company.

    Organizational unit - The name of your department within the organization (frequently this entry will be listed as "IT," "Web Security," or is simply left blank).

    City/locality - The city in which your organization is located.

    State/province - The state in which your organization is located.

    Country/region -TR

  6. Click Next.

  7. In the "Cryptographic Service Provider Properties" window, leave it at the default setting (Microsoft RSA SChannel) and for the Bit length choose 2048, then click Next.

  8. Click the ... box to browse to a location where you want to save the CSR file. If you just enter a filename without browsing to a location, your CSR will end up in C:\Windows\System32.

    Remember the filename that you choose and the location to which you save it. You will need to open this file as a text file and copy the entire body of it (including the Begin and End Certificate Request tags) into the E-Tugra online web page when prompted.
