Test-FasCertificateSigningRequest

Synopsis

Performs a test certificate signing request (CSR)

Syntax

Test-FasCertificateSigningRequest -UserPrincipalName <String> -Rule <String> [-CertificateDefinition <String>]
 [-CertificateAuthority <String>] [-SecurityContext <String>] [-ReuseCachedTestKey <String>]
 [-Address <String>] [-UserName <String>] [-Password <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

This command performs a test CSR. Any resulting certificate is discarded.

Use this test to verify CSRs to the Certificate Authority are working.

The supplied Certificate Definition defines the certificate template, authorization certificate and policy oids used for the CSR. The supplied Certificate Authority address must be present in the supplied CertificateDefinition.

If ReuseCachedTestKey is false, a new key-pair is created for the CSR.

If ReuseCachedTestKey is true, the test re-uses a cached key-pair for the CSR in order to avoid the overhead of generating a new key-pair. The cached key-pair is generated on demand per UPN, and is re-used for a maximum of 1 hour, after which a new key-pair is generated.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\>

C:\PS> $CitrixFasAddress=(Get-FasServer)[0].Address
C:\PS> Test-FasCertificateSigningRequest -UserPrincipalName "fred@citrixtest.net" -Rule Default
