I am receiving “The pending certificate request for this response file was not found.” error when importing the .cer file I receive from Comodo (the free trial SSL) using the certificate import wizard in IIS 5.0.
I’ve submitted support tickets but am constantly told this is an issue with a certificate that does not match the private key, however this is the third time I’ve regenerated the CSR so I’m fairly certain its not a private key matching issue.
I have created a backup of the private key each time, however if I delete the request and import backup private key into the REQUEST folder via the MMC, the server certificate import wizard no longer detects the pending request. Is there a way pair Comodo’s .cer and my request via the MMC? Are there other issues that may be causing the “file was not found” like common name not matching or using my servers private IP?
Thanks in advance for any help,
