ជំហានទី 1

Type the following text in the Exchange Management Shell command line:

New-ExchangeCertificate -GenerateRequest -KeySize 2048 -SubjectName "c=YourLocalityOrCity ( 2-letter abbreviation, for instance, US/GB/AU etc.)*, s=YourStateOrProvince*, o=YourCompanyInc*, cn=YourFirstDomain.com*" -DomainName YourSecondDomain.com, YourThirdDomain.com* -PrivateKeyExportable:$true

The command above should be put in one line into the management shell. The details marked with the * sign should be replaced with the details of your own organization

NB: The first domain name you would like to secure should be listed inside the “-SubjectName” after “cn=”, and additional domain names should be added after the -DomainName parameter separated with commas. This parameter is applicable for Multi-Domain certificates. You can add as many additional domain names as necessary ( the maximum quantity is 99 as the maximum amount of SANs for Comodo (now Sectigo) certificates is 100).

When you run this command, your CSR file will be printed to the management shell. In order to copy it from the management shell, it is necessary to right-click and choose “mark”. Now you can copy and paste your newly generated CSR including the BEGIN and END tags into the CSR submission form during the first step of certificate activation.

Please keep in mind that if you want to create a CSR file automatically on your machine after running the CSR creation command, use the following line immediately after the file generation:

Set-Content -path "C:\your_CSR_name.csr" -Value $Data

Once your CSR is ready, you can go further with the certificate activation; the detailed guide on how to do it can be located នៅ​ទីនេះ.
