If you need to generate a CSR for an external CA, you have to use the openssl command line instead of your Zentyal CA. Here you have an useful tutorial https://www.tecmint.com/generate-csr-certificate-signing-request-in-linux/

Bear in mind that you have to store the private key in a secure location. This is an useful book with some free on-line chapters https://www.feistyduck.com/library/openssl-cookbook/online/

Cheers!
