    Hi,

    On the server, we can use the MMC.MSC to generate CSR.
    To generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) via a MMC certificate snap-in using Microsoft Windows, perform the following steps.
    From Microsoft Windows, click Start.
    In the Search programs and files field, type mmc.
    Click File > Add/Remove Snap-in.
    From the list of available snap-ins, select Certificates.
    Click Add.
    Select Computer account.
    Click Next.
    Select Local computer (the computer this console is running on).
    Click Finish.
    In the Add/Remove Snap-in window, click OK.
    Save these console settings for future use.
    Access your MMC snap in > right click the Personal folder.
    Select All Tasks > Advanced Operations > Create Custom Request.
    For more details, you can refer to the following link:
