Learn How to Use Only Certain Cryptographic Algorithms and Protocols in Schannel.dll Setting up your server correctly on Windows is important if you want to ensure you’re actually using the encryption algorithms to protect data that goes from the client (web browser) to the server and back again.
FAQ: If a certificate signing request was generated on server A (now defective) and i want to install the certificate on Server B (replacement), can this be done?
Moving certificates from one server to another is definitely possible. There are multiple criteria involved in determining how to move the certificate from one server to another. Please see the below articles to determine the proper way to move your certificate from one server to another:
In order to correct this problem, you will need access to the original certificate backup (.pfx) file. To ensure this problem does not happen in the future (should you want to export the private key again) make sure during the import process that you select the box “mark the private key as exportable.”

The Certificate Signing Request is a text file containing your organization’s information and server’s public key. The CSR is used to generate the certificate that will encrypt your information.
