How to generate certificate for SEPM using enterpreise AD

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi all,

I'd like to use an enterpreise AD certificare rather than the self singed certificate, so that when I access admin console I don't get ssl error and I don't have to add the self signed certificate to exeptions. How can I do this? what kind of certificate I have to request? Is SEPM abele to generate a certificate request?

In a nut shell, you can't.

The certificate for accessing the SEPM Console cannot be changed I'm afraid.  The only place you can implement your own certificate is for the client-to-server comms.
