I have a wildcard cert from godaddy which I generate for my exchange 2010.
I have tried to import the cert into fortinet but unable to do so. Can anyone share how to do it correct?
The reason is to secure my website for remote access.
See if this helps:
You need to export the certificate from Windows with the private key, then follow the steps in the KB article to break up the cert and key to import.
You need to go back to the machine that originally created the certificate signing request and try to export the private key from there. Alternatively you can use XCA to create a certificate request and private key. You can then rekey your certificate at GoDaddy.

Thanks to jmac,
I managed to export the cert and using the KB article, extract out the pem & cert file and import it into the firewall. Then I set fortigate to use the imported cert. Tested n its working very well.
thanks all for the inputs.
SSL rekeying is the process of replacing the current SSL certificate with a new one while retaining the same private key. This process is necessary when the SSL certificate is about to expire or when you need to change the information contained in the certificate, such as the domain name or organization name. Rekeying allows you to keep the same private key, which is important because it’s used to encrypt and decrypt data transmitted between your website and the user’s browser.
