How to move an SSL certificate from F5 to Microsoft IIS server


Step 1: Export a certificate from F5.

Please follow this procedure and run the following command line on the F5:

openssl pkcs12 -export -in /path/to/ssl-cert.crt -inkey /path/to/private.key -certfile /path/to/intermediate-ca.crt -out cert-export.pfx

This will create a file on the F5 called filename.pfx.

You then need to move the file to your IIS web server.


Step 2: Import a .pfx file on the IIS Web Server.

For instructions on how to import the certificate on the IIS web server, please have a look at the following article:
