|File name containing the certificate authority's response:||Click the … button to locate the .cer file you received from the CA|
|Friendly name:||Type a friendly name for the certificate. This is not part of the certificate; instead, it is used to identify the certificate.|
Note: We recommend that you add the issuing CA and the expiration date to the end of your friendly name; for example, yoursite-authority-(expiration date). Doing this helps identify the issuer and expiration date for each certificate and also helps distinguish multiple certificates with the same domain name.
Note: There is a known issue in IIS 7 where the following message is displayed: "Cannot find the certificate request associated with this certificate file. A certificate request must be completed on the computer where it was created." You may also receive a message stating: "ASN1 bad tag value met."
If this is the server where you generated the CSR, it's possible the certificate is actually installed and the message can be ignored. Simply click OK, then close and reopen Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager to refresh the list of server certificates. The new certificate should appear in the Server Certificates list, and you can continue with the next step.
