CERTREQ – Windows CMD Command

Request certificate from a certification authority (CA), retrieve a response to a previous request from a CA, create a new request from a .inf file, accept and install a response to a request, construct a cross-certification or qualified subordination request from an existing CA certificate or request, or to sign a cross-certification or qualified subordination request.

You must specify the CAComputerName or CAName in -config CAComputerName\CAName. Otherwise, the Select Certificate Authority dialog box appears and displays a list of all CAs that are available.

To retrieve the certificate after the CA has actually issued it use certreq -retrieve RequestID, you can also use this command to retrieve any certificate that has ever been issued by the CA, including revoked or expired certificates, without regard to whether the certificate’s request was ever in the pending state.

If you submit a request to the CA, the policy module of the CA might temporarily leave the request in a pending state and return the RequestID for display. Eventually, the CA’s administrator will issue the certificate or deny the request.
