Notes

  • The Yes, export the private key, option is not available on the Export Private Key page of the Certificate Export Wizard if the private key has already been exported to another computer, or if the key never existed on the Web server. You cannot use this certificate on the Forefront TMG computer. You must request a new certificate for Forefront TMG for this Web site.
  • After you successfully complete this procedure, you can import the certificate to a Forefront TMG computer. For instructions, see Importing a certificate to a Forefront TMG computer.
