Certificate procedure – Step 3: Issuing the certificate

Now that we have created our certificate request, we’ll be issuing it ourselves with our Certification Authority (CA) for testing purposes.

A very quick and simple process:
1. Open the Certification Authority console and browse to Pending Certificates. Once there, right click on the certificate and under “all tasks” choose Issue.

2. Then, go to Issued Certificates, right click on the issued certificate and click on “Copy to file” to save the certificate to a safe location.
