Certificate Authority & IIS

    General discussion

  • I try to request a certificate through web enrollment it says the same.
    "An unexpected error has occurred: The Certification Authority Service has not been started."

    It seems to have broke itself??

    Anyway. I got ssl website to work with user authenticated session certificates. Just the web enrollment broke for some reason.
    My CA, IIS, and DC servers all have delegation for all services, enabled.

    I need the web enrollment as a way to get the root ca distributed down. This is a lab environment so I am trying to do it the "right way"

    What seems to be the issue?

  • The CA server:

    here are some recent log entries for the certsvc:

    -Could not connect to the Active Directory. Certificate Services will retry when processing requires Active Directory access.
    -The "Windows default" Policy Module "Initialize" method returned an error. The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. The returned status code is 0x8007054b (1355). The Active Directory containing the Certification Authority could not be contacted.

    userenv service errors:

    -Windows cannot determine the user or computer name. (The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. ). Group Policy processing aborted. x2
