Generating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) using Novell ConsoleOne


You import a public key certificate after you have created a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) and Comodo has returned the signed public key certificate to you.

To create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) :

  1. Log in to the eDirectory tree as an administrator with the appropriate rights.
  2. Start ConsoleOne
  3. Right-click the container object that contains the server that will run your cryptography-enabled applications; then select 'New', 'Object'. Click the Security tab, then certificates.
  4. From the list box in the New Objects dialog box, double-click NDSPKI:Key Material.

This opens the Create a Server Certificate dialog box and the corresponding wizard that creates the Server Certificate object. For specific information on the dialog box or any of the wizard pages, click Help.
