Page cannot be displayed
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Schannel
Event Category: None
Event ID: 36869
Time: 9:12:46 AM
Description: The SSL server credential's certificate does not have a private key information property attached to it. This most often occurs when a certificate is backed up incorrectly and then later restored. This message can also indicate a certificate enrollment failure.

When you try to export the certificate, you receive the following warning message:
#You DON'T have a private key that corresponds to this certificate.
To resolve the problem, create a new certificate with a private key. To do this, follow these steps:
