For windows 2008, expanding on the url above:

The high-level process to obtain a certificate from a stand-alone certification authority (CA) is as follows:

1. Download the Trusted Root (CA) certificate – do this on a machine that has access to the certificate server and then copy to the workgroup machine.

2. Import the Trusted Root (CA) certificate to the workgroup machine.

3. Create a setup information file to use with the CertReq command-line utility – do this on the workgroup machine.

4. Create a request file – do this on the workgroup machine and then copy file to a server that has access to the certificate server

5. Submit a request to the CA using the request file from a server that has access to the certificate server

6. Approve the pending certificate request – from the certificate server

7. Retrieve the certificate from the CA – from a machine that has access to the certificate server

8. Import the certificate into the certificate store – copy certificate to workgroup computer

9. Import the certificate into Operations Manager using MOMCertImport – on workgroup computer.

10. And then install the agent and approve install from opsmgr console
