Private keys can be imported into your server.

Generating a new SSL Private Key requires a new CSR and SSL Server Certificate Chain. Importing an SSL Private Key requires importing an associated SSL Server Certificate or generating a new CSR and obtaining a new SSL Certificate from a Certificate Authority.

Private Keys are replaced if you choose to import from .p7b or .pfx bundle formats. For more information, see Importing and exporting certificates.

  1. Log in to the Admin UI using your System Console account.
