Create a Certificate Signing Request for Sybase Manage Anywhere Studio (Using IIS 5.0)
To generate a CSR, you first need to create a key pair for your server. These two items are a digital certificate key pair and cannot be separated. If you lose your public/private key file or your password and generate a new one, your SSL Certificate will no longer match your private key. You will have to request a new SSL Certificate and may be charged.
The CSR needs to contain the following attributes:
Common Name – must match the URL you plan to secure exactly – is usually your fully-qualified domain name, e.g., devel.ssl247.ie or mail.devel.ssl247.ie). Remember the www. Is important – include it if you want to secure https://www.yoursite.com & exclude it if you want to secure https://yoursite.com
Organisation - The legal (officially registered) name of your organization/company include Inc., LLP., Pvt, Plc. Ltd. SARL., etc
Organisational unit - The name of your department within the organization (this is often "IT," "Web," or is just left blank).
City/locality - The city or town in which your organization is located.
State/province - The state in which your organization is located.
Country - click here for the official list of ISO country codes for this field.
Note: Certificates can only be used on Web servers using the Common Name specified during enrollment. For example, a certificate for the domain "domain.com" will receive a warning if accessing a site named "www.domain.com" or "secure.domain.com", because "www.domain.com" and "secure.domain.com" are different from "domain.com".
We recommend that you contact Sybase for additional information.

- Complete the information requested by the IIS Certificate Wizard to create a private key that is stored locally on your server and a public key (the Certificate Signing Request) that you will use during the enrollment process. You have successfully generated a CSR file. See Terms Defined if you have questions about any of the information requested.
- Click Finish to exit the IIS Certificate Wizard. A CSR file has been generated.
