Windows Certificate Authority, unable to export PFX12

Hi there,


I am trying to get A CSR signed by my Windows Certificate Authority. its for a Dell iDrac. Everything works fine however I cannot export the cert as PFX12.
I already cloned my default webserver template to include the allow private key to be exported. Created a new cert with the template.
Rebooted all services, however it remains greyed out. Also when I import the cert on a server and try to export it from there, I get the same result.

Is there something I am missing?

Thanks, however, I get this error:

cannot export non-exportable private key

This is because the private key is not exportable on the certificate..
So in this case, you have to fallow this work around

the cert does not popup. I have tried to install the serverXXX cert on serverYYY on the localmachine store
Other certs owned by serverYYY do popup when I run the command : dir cert:\localmachine\my | Where-Object { $_.hasPrivateKey }
