Hi Prit,

The SSL will run fine on 2008 R2.  What kind of certificate do you have and how was it created?

Regards

Paul

Hello Prit,

If you are having issues with your Secure-IT finding the certificate on a Microsoft Server 2008 R2 x64, please try the following

  1. Browse to C:\Windows\System32\
  2. Run MMC.exe as “Run as Administrator”
  3. Add your Certificates Snap-In for the local computer account
  4. Import your Cert

This should allow the Quest Secure-IT Applet to find your Certificate

Edit: Please also try placing the cert into the “Personal” certificate folder on your Secure-IT Server
