The openssl.exe comes with Apache which is a sub-directory within Tableau Server. If you change to the one directory from the link you mentioned it should work, that is the openssl command should then be recognized:
cd C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\<version>\apache\bin
Though if you're running the 32-bit version of Tableau Server, the above directory path might be C:\Program Files (x86)\Tableau\Tableau Server\....
For your directory path, you'll want to change <version> to the version you have installed. For example, on my computer I'm running 9.3.7 but the last digit represents the maintenance release so really it's part of the 9.3.x branch so I'd would use 9.3 in place of version. If you have 10.0.x then yours would be 10.0. Someone running 10.1.2 or 10.1.3 would be using 10.1 in place of <version>
Hey Mark -- Thank you so much for your continued assistance. I have made major inroads today thanks to you. I believe that I have entered all of the CSR data correctly. I am not sure what a CSR actually looks like. However, I expected that this entry process would end with something more that a return to the Apache bin file prompt. Here's a snapshot of the Command Prompt:
What am I missing here? I did take an extended break to purchase a domain to use for the Common Name. Would that in effect log me off? Thanks!

I want to install SSL, but can't get past Step 1: Creating a certificate signing request. I have unsuccessfully tried using Tableau and Google documentation. In particular, I have been trying to use Example: SSL Certificate - Generate a Key and CSR.
I've yet to find any site be of any help for SSL
Were you able to configure SSL on your server?
Yes. I am all set!
