Error: Specified CSR config does not exist.

Hello Michele-

  To generate a CSR, you need to create CSR parameters first which define the attributes (common name and all that)

  To do so, go to configuration mode, enter this:

  "crypto csr-params MDS_CSR_2012"

  Then define all the paramters you want to include. The following are the most common and an example of a certificate signing request I would create for www.cisco.com:

  common-name www.cisco.com

  organization-name Customer Advocacy

  organization-unit Technical Assistance Center

  email WebAdmin@cisco.com

  country US

  state CA

  locality San Jose

  Once you have that, you can go back to global and issue "crypto generate csr MDS_CSR_2012 MDS_KEY_2012.PEM"

 

Regards,

Chris Higgins
