When configuring a new Office Online Server i run in to the following error while setting up the new farm with command:

PS C:\Windows\system32> New-OfficeWebAppsFarm -InternalUrl "https://oos.contoso.com" -ExternalUrl "https://oos.contoso.com" -CertificateName "Skypeweb"
New-OfficeWebAppsFarm : Office Online was unable to find the specified certificate.

 + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (:) [New-OfficeWebAppsFarm], ArgumentException
 + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CertificateNotFound,Microsoft.Office.Web.Apps.Administration.NewFarmCommand

I imported the certificate chain in the computer personal store, i noticed the intermediate and root certificate where also placed in the personal store.

I cut/paste the certificates to the right folder.
Intermediate

Trusted Root

Now the personal store looks like:

 

After running the command again, the webfarm is succesfully created.
