Standard Wildcard SSL - Private Key - option 'to export the private key' was greyed out.

Hi, I recently rekeyed (after an automatic renewal) a wildcard certificate. I downloaded and installed the certificate on the server that I raised the CSR on and the private key successfully installed. As I needed the certificate on another server, I went to export the certificate from my original server and the option 'to export the private key' was greyed out, so I am unable to use this wildcard on other servers.


There's nowhere in the CSR process to request that the private key be marked as exportable, so I'm assuming that it's being marked as such during the rekey but again I don't recall an option to make the private key exportable. 


Does anyone have the answer for this?
