Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 Web Client Scale-Out Deployment: Creating A Self-Signed SSL Certificate On The Session Central Server

January 20th, 2014 by

The Session Control and Session Host machines require an SSL certificate. In a production environment I would recommend using a wildcard SSL domain certificate, but as this is only my test environment I am going to use a self-signed SSL certificate.

To create a self-signed SSL certificate, open Internet Information Serices (IIS) Manager and double click on Server Certificates:

Internet Information Serices (IIS) Manager

In the Action pane, click on Create Self-Signed Certificate:

Internet Information Serices (IIS) Manager - Server Certificates

Specify a friendly name to make the certificate recognisable; I have named mine Dynamics GP Web Client and select Personal for the certificate store:

Create Self-Signed Certificate

Click OK to create the certificate and close IIS Manager.
