Is it possible to export the private key or the cert-key pair ?

I need to request a new  certificate for an Aruba 3600 controller, but to approve the request my infosec department is asking me to send them the private key or cert-key pair (.p12 or .pfx file).  Is there a way to export this?  Thanks!

Private keys cannot be exported from the controller. If you need this
functionality, create the key and CSR on an external server.

Today I was able to get the private key from a controller backup and add it to the CA signed cert and upload it to all of my other controllers after I generated the csr on one of them. I am not sure this is a supported method however it worked for me. Thought I would share.
