how to enable that private key can be exported

Discussion in 'Server Security' started by Rolf Rettinger, Aug 26, 2004.

  1. I would like to export my certificate with the private key to be able to
    install them on a PDA. Unfortunately, the export private key function is
    always greyed out.

    How can I change that? I'm running my own windows 2000 CA.

    You have to generate a new key - the option to make it exportable is only
    available at that stage.

    Hi Rolf,

    If you use Web enrollment page use "advanced certificate request" -> "Create
    and submit a request to this CA". Once you enter all users' data select
    checkbox "Mark keys as exportable"

    Once you download and install this certificate to e.g. your PC, you will
    also be able to export the private key.

  4. Hi,
    even if I try to generate a new key I'm not able to mark the key as
    exportable. Any idea?
