Certificate Request (Returned)
The Online Certificate Request Status page presents you with important information that results from the successful creation and issuing of the online certificate request. This page provides the certificate thumbprint that uniquely identifies the certificate. By default, the check box Assign this certificate to Skype for Business Server certificate usages is selected. If you click Finish, the certificate will be automatically assigned to Lync Server 2013 for the purposes that you defined during the creation steps of the certificate request. By default, the purposes that the certificate will be assigned are:
Server Default for Mutual Transport Layer Security (MTLS) - Connections to clients and other servers
Web services internal - Client and server connections on the internal Web services site for Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer (TLS/SSL)
Web services external - Client and server connections on the external Web services site for TLS/SSL
Click the View Certificate Details to view the certificate to confirm that the properties of the certificate are what you intended, and that the certificate is ready to be applied and put into use on the server.
Click Finish to complete the online certificate request process. If you selected the check box Assign this certificate to Skype for Business Server certificate usages, the certificate will be automatically assigned. If you chose to clear this check box, you must assign the certificate in a separate step.
If the issuing certification authority (CA) root certificate is not in the computer's Trusted Root Certification Authority store, or if intermediate CA certificates are not in the proper store, you will see the summary status, as illustrated in the following image. You do not have the option to assign the certificate. To complete the certificate assignment process, you must import the issuing CA root certificate and any intermediate CA certificates, and then assign the certificate by clicking Assign on the main Certificate Wizard page.
