  • i found the answe myself.  the command is actually incomplete . we need to add <<machinename>>.cer at the end of the command.

  • makecert -sk <<UniqueKeyName>> -iv RootCATest.pvk -n "CN=<<MachineName>>" -ic RootCATest.cer -sr localmachine -ss my -sky exchange -pe
    
    

    This is the command line given to create and install temporary service certificate.

    I have created a certificate called RootCATest1 and installed it in trusted root certification authorities using MMC snap-in. I have RootCATest1 .cer and RootCATest1.pvk files created under the location of my program files. 

     

    so i ran the above command 

    makecert -sk << XYZ>> -iv RootCATest1.pvk -n "CN=<<kondamud-fiu>>" -ic RootCATest1.cer -sr localmachine -ss my -sky exchange pe

    and am getting error <<Was unexpected at this time

     

    XYZ is the unique name i wanted to give and kondamud-fiu is the name of my local machine. I have even tried writing the same command without changing anything vut i find myself with same error.

    Please help
