An exception occurred while getting local certificate by friendly name



An exception occurred while getting local certificate by friendly name


Issue: An exception occurred while getting local certificate by friendly name

Cause: This issue occurs because IIS Manager performs a lookup operation to look for a friendly name of the certificate during the installation. However, the code that performs this lookup operation misses this specific case, and it does not know how to retrieve the friendly name of a certificate in a PKCS#7 file. Therefore, the lookup operation fails, and you receive the error message

Solution: To resolve this problem, add a friendly name to the certificate. To do this, follow these steps:

1.   Click Start, click Run, type certmgr.mmc, and then click OK.
2.   Click File, click Add/Remove Span-ins.
3.   Select Certificates, and click Add, and then click OK.
4.   Select Computer account, and click Next, and then click Finish.
5.   Click OK.
6.   Expand Certificates (Local Computer), and Personal, and then Certificates.
7.   Right-click the certificate, and then click Properties.
8.   Edit the Friendly name field and put as required.
