Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM has now been released. In a series of posts, I am be stepping through the installation of Microsoft Dynamics GP and additional products ; the series index for this series of posts is here and will automatically update as posts go live.
I am taking a small break (sort of) from that post, to cover the installation/configuration of the prerequisites for the installation of the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM web client (the installation of which is part of the Hands On series).
This is the first of the posts on installing and configuring the web client prerequisites; in this post I am going to cover the creation of a self-signed security certificate.
The web client is a web based service, which requires a security certificate to be created and bound to the web site. Once IIS has been installed, it is a simple process to create a self-signed security.
To do so, launch Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and click on the server name in the navigation pane. in the detail pane, double click on Server Certificates:
In the Actions pane, click on Create Self-Signed Certificate:
Enter a friendly name for the certificate and click OK to create the certificate:
Close Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. In the next post, I’ll show how to bind the certificate to the web site
