I am a new administrator with very little experience, trying to configure my ADFS to cooperate with a single sign-on solution to cloud-based help desk software to be used internally in my organization. I have installed the Windows 7.1 SDK package on Server 2012, and am now in the process of attempting to make a certificate. The PDF guide is now instructing me to type the following commands into Windows SDK 7.1 command prompt:
makecert -r -pe -n "CN=adfs.yourdomain.com" -b 01/01/2013 -e 01/01/2014 -sky exchange Server.cer -sv Server.pvk
(Instead of “adfs.yourdomain.com” give the fully qualified name of the AD FS system in the above command)
pvk2pfx.exe -pvk Server.pvk -spc Server.cer -pfx Server.pfx
After entering command 1.), I enter a password upon being prompted to do so. Next, I enter 2.), at which time it gives me an error message as follows:
ERROR: File not found Error Code = 0x80070002
My question is two-fold: firstly and most straight-forwardly, what is happening here and how do I resolve this issue? Secondly, and more generally, what resources are available to me to familiarize myself with these presently obscure commands? I mean, I don't even know what I'm typing...
