You can import a signed certificate for a CSR.

When you use a self-signed certificate the client user receives a warning message such as, Invalid Security Certificate. The client user must then accept the self-signed certificate when first connecting to the server in order to proceed. Allowing client users to select this option provides reduced security than other authorization methods.


Verify that a CSR is available. See Create a Certificate Signing Request File.
