In this article we examine the process of generating a certificate request for Exchange 2016. We explore how to accomplish this using the Exchange Admin Center and PowerShell.
Let’s get started!
Generate a Certificate Request with Exchange Admin Center
Log into the Exchange Admin Center (EAC). Select the Servers tab and Certificates sub tab.
This page displays all currently installed Exchange certificates. These three self-signed certificates are installed with Exchange out of the box. The self-signed certificate titled “Microsoft Exchange” is the one that Exchange is currently using for all of its web services. That’s the one that we will replace with a trusted 3rd party certificate.
Like its predecessor, Exchange 2016 maintains the Certificate Request Wizard. This wizard takes all the guess work out of generating a certificate request.
To launch the wizard click the New () button.
