Request a new certificate in ATA from Active Directory Certificate Services

Q: Request a new certificate in ATA from Active Directory Certificate Services

Can someone walk me through the steps of having Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) request a new certificate from Active Directory Certificate Services (ADCS)? I'm not familiar with either product so I will need detailed steps please. At a high-level
i'm guessing
1. ATA issues a certificate request
2. I send the request to ADCS
3. ADCS issues a cert for that request
4. Install new cert in ATA
I'll need detailed command line statements. My ATA Center server is named ATASERVER.DOMAIN.ORG, and I but the URL is configured as ATACENTER.DOMAIN.ORG in ATA. Can the cert handle both the servername and the URL?
Thank you in advance!

I am trying to resolve an issue where multiple client computers in the organisation are using an internally deployed Root CA certificate (before my time and no longer required) to sign the end entity certificate for external websites, google.co.uk
for example. All SSL sites appeared to be affected by this.

However this is not the case as sub domains of sites with issues show the correct cert chain, the below is for mail.google.com

Removing or untrusting this root ca cert breaks access to these sites.

I have reset root certs in various ways, removed machines from the domain, applied no GPOs, manually updated CRL and pulled down updated certs with rootsupd.exe.
It always attempts to use this rouge CA cert to sign the websites cert.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

I am trying to install CA root certificate on Windows 7, IE 9.
Encounter error: "Untrusted Certificate".  "This certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority."
I have tried to install the certificate to Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->local computer and import was successful. BUT on IE->Internet Options->Certificate->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities, I am unable to find this root CA on
the list.
On mmc->Certificates->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->certificates, I am able to view this root CA.
I then restarted the IE and view the ssl site again but failed too, "Untrusted Certificate".
Anyone, any idea ?

A:Unable to Install Root CA Certificate - Certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority.

May the following workarounds work for you:
Workaround 1:
Modify the Windows settings to allow the Update Root Certificate feature to update the root certificates automatically. For details, see the following Microsoft TechNet article:
Certificate Support and Resulting Internet Communication in Windows Server 2008
Workaround 2?
If the Update Root Certificate feature cannot automatically update the root certificates, you may contact the website vender to see if there is a hotfix can fix the issue.

We are experiencing this problem with a few workstations and laptops and what we are currently doing is exporting the CA certificate from a workstation that has it in its store and importing it. The problem with this is that the certificate will eventually
expire and we will have to re import a new one again. I don't believe it is a group policy issue because other computers in the same OU are not missing the certificate.

Cany anyone shed light on how to troubleshoot this or how to force (if possible) the workstation to download the CA certificate?

Thank you in advance.

First, I have reviewed the other posts with similar questions and noted that I can install the certificate into root certificates and most likely this problem will go away, some specifics:

1) When a client reported this error using a pop.secureserver.net on an outlook 2003 client, I just figured it was godaddy or the REALLY old Outlook client, but nonetheless, I went in to troubleshoot it and was convinced it was godaddy, but when I tried
to start my Outlook 2016 client on my Windows 10 computer on their network, I got the same error.  Two notes are important: 1) I use godaddy as well and 2) I used the same computer at a different client just yesterday without a single error message.
2) They use POP 995 w/ SSL & SMTP 465 w/ SSL to pop.secureserver.net & smtpout.secureserver.net repsectively
3) I called the company that manages their firewall and was told that everything was fine, but was sent a certificate from the firewall that might fix the problem.
4) The firewall company tells me they use a fortinet firewall

I have some questions that I'm hoping one of the experts here can answer for me:

I have some Windows 7 systems which have not run Windows Updates for many years, and cannot due to regulatory reasons.   We rely upon Windows to automatically update the Trusted Root Certificate store whenever we browse to a web site/web service
that uses a certificate the system doesn't recognize. 
Sometime recently, the Trusted Root Certificate Store no longer updates automatically.  The Windows Event Log shows an error stating that the certificates cannot be downloaded from:
http : // ctldl.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootstl.cab
If we browse to this location manually, the cab file contains an invalid Microsoft certificate. 

This was also an issue in Sept 2018.  At that time, the certificate had expired, and Microsoft eventually updated the certificate to resolve the issue.   This time, the certificate does not appear to have expired.  Why is the certificate
invalid this time, and can Microsoft fix it again?

In Internet Explorer, when I get a certificate error, if I continue to the web site, I can then view the certificate to see what was wrong.  However, obviously it would be preferable* to see the certificate
before I make the decision to go to the site.  Is this possible?  I'm sure I could use another browser that does this, or maybe use the F12 developer tools, or write a program.   But I'm looking
for a normal-user way to do it.  I think it used to be possible in Internet Explorer, but this might have been 6.x or even earlier.  Or even
way earlier.  Yep.  I'm that old.  I believe this feature is not in Edge either...unless I'm just missing it.  But I'm using ie11 right now.

Really confusing one here. Since this weekend (16/17 July) we have started getting Certificate errors on some sites and applications. This seems to be due to the structure of the URL compared to the "advertised" name IIS is presenting. I'll try
to explain.
I have a site, Website. This is in my domain, domain.com. Therefore the FQDN is website.domain.com. IIS is running and I can access this site through FQDN,NetBIOS or IP address. Good news.
I create a certificate for the server using the FQDN as the subject, I add the Netbios and IP addresses in the Subject Alternate Names and Bind this to port 443 on the server.
I browse to https://website and all is good. I browse to https://website.domain.com I get a certificate error. Checking the certificate, everything is fine, no errors, chain is trusted. open Chrome and do the same, I get that the certificate website.domain.com
is being presented by Website and may not be the site I want.
Using either URL has never been a problem until this weekend, but it seems that IE/Windows/IIS is not liking any URL that is not EXACTLY what IIS is presenting. so my questions are:-
Is anyone else finding this?
Can we issue a certificate that covers all possible DNS resolutions for a site?
How do I control WHAT IIS advertises itself as?
SO far this has affected two major systems on our network and I can see that more will arise, so any help would be appreciated.

Hi, florina, and welcome to the forums.

I understand that this is an error message, but how many times has it occurred? What are you hardware specs? What software do you have installed? What antivirus, antimalware and antispam do you have installed? have you scanned with those? Can you post a screen shot of the error? If you need help using the snipping tool to create a screen shot see How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista

In general just post info about the error message is not going to be helpful enough, because we need to know what you were doing, what caused the error, and the frequency of the error, and if it is reproducible.

We have a problem where we encrypted files using EFS, however we can't access or decrypt these files now.

We have the certificate in the certmgr.msc but we do see that the key is missing.

I have reproduced this on another computer and was able to run certutil -repairstore -user MY "Serial Number" which worked in repairing the store and files was decryptable again.

However on the machine that encrypted the files that we need to access this is not the case as there is a popup asking for your Smart Card.

We are not using Smart Cards at all, and have had a look at the following article regarding this issue, but the hotfix didn't work: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2955631

I have software that can remove the encryption but will require the .pfx file, which can't be exported as the certstore doesn't show that it still has this.

It is a self signed certificate generated by Windows, so I can't request a new one using the CA.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Having some fun with a windows 7 setup of DirectAccess, have it configured to use ECC certificates on the client for the IPSec authentication, which was working brilliantly, we even have it loaded up behind a Citrix Netscaler to do SSL offloading of the
HTTPS tunnel encryption. But when trying to get Client Preauthentication working, we hit a snag, it seems that the NetScalers dont support ECC certificates, which is a pain, but something we thought we could work around by using an RSA certificate on the client
to performed the pre-authentication (as shown here https://directaccess.richardhicks.com/2016/05/10/directaccess-ip-https-preauthentication-using-citrix-netscaler/).
So we have three CA's, CA1/2 issue RSA certs and CA3 is setup to do the ECC ones, so nice separation of the chains.
So we have our Cert chain for RSA loaded into the load balancer and a new cert issued to the client from CA1... But, every time the client connects to the server (LB) we see the handshake taking place, the server sends a list of its DNs (CA1/2) (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/kaushal/2015/05/27/client-certificate-authentication/)
to the client, but then the client looks in its store, picks out the ECC certificate (issued from CA3) and fails to authenticate saying no suitable certificate can be found, its like its not even looking at the RSA one at all.
So, thinking something was wrong with the way the LB was asking for client authentication, I tried deleting the ECC cert a... Read more

I've been trying for a long time to quiet my HD. I have HP Media Center PC with AMD dual core w/2 GB ram and Vista Home Premium 32 bit OS.

I've been fairly successful in getting rid of HD run on. But the latest culprit seems to be Certificate Services Client. From what I can read on the web it seems to have something to do with Corporate Domains and users credentials when using other than their usual PC on the network. I have a 2 PC home Lan and am not on a domain. So I don't understand why I need this or why it's even running. I don't use Windows file encryption afaik.

So my question is, can I safely disable the Certificate Services Client scheduled tasks in Task Scheduler?
Seems like once they kick off I can forget about burning a DVD for 10 or 20 minutes.

I would like to remove the Cert Services but not sure on where to start. Any help/suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

I am not sure where to post this, so I put this into the general section.

I was trying to learn about the Certificate Services Client scheduled tasks today and basically I failed. With lots of information available on various Microsoft sites, the basic questions are apparently very hard to answer.

The question is - what are these tasks doing on a stand-alone machine? I mean, I have a PC at home which is not part of a domain, active directory is disabled as far as I know, no windows networking either (the "network", i.e. my dsl connection, is treated as a "public network"). The Windows credential manager shows zero credentials stored on the machine.

Yet, there are scheduled tasks active and running every time I log onto the machine with the description:

"Certificate Services Client automatically manages digital identities such as Certificates, Keys and Credentials for the users and the machine, enabling enrollment, roaming and other services."

It does not preclude me from doing anything on the computer, but it clearly uses a lot of disk read/write operations. If I am on the HDD, this is fairly noisy. On SSD I am worried about the unnecessary writes.

So, the question is - do I actually need these tasks or they are safe to disable? What exactly is being "managed" by these tasks if there are no credentials at all on the machine?

A:Certificate Services Client scheduled task

SSL, aka., HTTPS uses certificates along with those various services involving certificates. Digital Signatures (which Windows uses extensively) also make use of certificates and the various services provided by the service.

So yes, you need it.

I have a problem with install multiple digital certificate (PKF format) to allow access to one website with different account ID.

Every time I installed the certificate, it is working and allow me access to the website with relevance ID. However, the installed certificate will be missing if I continue to install with another certificate. The way I install the certificate is just double click on the PKF certificate that provided by the website admin, then kept click on the next button until its finish the installation steps. All the certificates will install to "Personal" certificate store folder, but the problem is only one certificate will remain.

I ever try to import all the certificate with using windows certificate manager, is allow me to import all the certificates and able to let me access to the website with select different certificate to login with selected account ID. Anyway this method is only workable if the Internet Explorer is not close after install all the certificates, once the Internet Explorer is close, then all the certificates were gone.

The motioned problem PC is running on Windows XP SP3 with latest update. And the using internet explorer is version 8 with latest update as well.

I had try to reset the Internet Explorer to default, but is not working so, appreciate is anyone can guide me to solve this problem

A:PKF certificate missing after new certificate was installed

Under "Content" in Internet Options, are all your certificates there? Mine are. Either your Admin. or the issuer should have your answer. Some PKFs are not compatible with all OSs or Browsers. Try downloading certificates to Firefox or Chrome and see if that works.

What we need:

To enable single sign on across all computers and VMs using Active Directory domain services.Be able to control user permmissions via ADNot have to manually change DNS settings when adding computers to the new domain I assume we have to make.
I started by making a new domain in a new forest on a new VM meant to be the new domain controller(hostgator domain=clearcapgroup.com and new domain=ClearCap.com).  I created records on hostgator to point requests for clearcap.com to the new domain
controller (ClearCap.com domain controller = dc1).  When I use the wizard to try and connect a computer to ClearCap.com via dc1, dc1 is detected but cannot be contacted.  

Is this even the proper way to achieve the end goal of single sign on across all PCs and AD services for users and groups?  Should I make a subdomain of clearcapgroup.com instead of a separate domain?  I am mildly experienced in networking, main
concentration is development usually, any help/advice/resources are appreciated!

Hi - Fixing my elderly father's W7/64 desktop. Attempting to print form MS Word to an HP3390 does not give any errors but does not print, either. Attempting to "find printer" from MS Word gives "The Active Directory Domain Services is currently unavailable." I went to services.msc to turn on that service but it does not appear in the list. Driver for the printer is already included in Windows 7, according to the HP support site. Printer is USB connected directly to the computer.

BTW Computer is running MW Word 2003 if that makes any difference.

Any ideas/advice? Thanks!

Inevitably with HP printers, I went to hell and back trying to install it, and just at just about the point where I was ready to attempt to fling the printer over the horizon - it inexplicably connected and printed just fine.

I think at some point I have been there with almost every printer I have ever owned. Why you can perform the same operation 19 times and get a different result on the 20th ... I have no idea.

Hi, I'm new to these forms, my name is Kcaz.

Today I was trying to add wireless printers to my computer (Toshiba running Windows 7 64 bit). At home, I have one wireless printer (Cannon) which works fine. To install that i think I downloaded the drivers from a CD.

Now I was trying to download the drivers for the printers at school. They are all connected through the main internet network. I've seen people (mac) download the drivers wirelessly, and I wanted to do the same. So in Microsoft Word 2007, when I press print, then in the window "Find Printer" an error comes up that says "The Active Directory Domain Services is currently unavailable". It doesn't matter where I try it, home or school, i guess the problem is within the computer.

I tried to google this, but the responses are all about how people can't print, or another related, but not relevant problem.

Thanks for any help


Are you on a network with a domain controller? Did you try and setup a domain or a workgroup?

Hi All,

I have a Brother HL-2142 printer hooked up to my Windows 10 pro desktop. It does not matter what program I try to print from, the printer is always offline.

I have tried to add another printer but all I get is this message. "the active directory domain services is currently unavailable windows 10"

I've done a lot of research and tried several things, even downloaded a new driver, but I can't print anything.

Any thoughts?

Earlier today I was sending a message to a friend and suddenly this error popped up "The active directory domain services is currently unavailable", is this normal? Also, what caused it? I think I might have accidentally pressed one of Windows' shortcuts but which one is it?

I have a Vista computer networked to an XP computer that is physically connected to a Samsung printer. I have been printing fine for 8 months now. Suddenly I am getting this error message when I try to print from the Vista computer. The Vista computer sees the Samsung just fine. The Vista computer is able to connect to the XP computer and save a word document to the XP and then print. It just can no longer send an item to print across the network anymore. Like I said, it had been printing fine. How can I make the "Active Directory Domain Service" available again?

Thank you,

Try un-sharing the printer on the XP and then re-enabling the shared printer.

Desktop PC has Epson printer USB connected. Worked fine in W7. Upgraded to W10, and printer does not work - gives message "Active Directory Domain Services is Currently Unavailable ". Connecting to HP laptop bought with W10 it works fine. Long chat session with MS Tech who tried various things on my PC did not solve a thing. Hate to carry laptop to printer or printer to laptop all the time, plus desktop had old software not installed (and unavailable now) on laptop. Help!! I could of course use Open Office word or excel, convert all files and transfer via flash drive to laptop - what a chore!!

HP 3015 All-in-One has worked fine for years, plugged into wife's PC. Yesterday it stopped communicating and the error message; "Active Directory Domain Services unavailable" is cryptic. This error is discussed in various internet fora but no solution found is pertinent to my problem.

Printer prints a test page from itself - i.e. machine is apparently functional
uninstalled and reinstalled printer. After re-install there are issues and the troubleshooter fixes them and sets printer as default. It still does not respond to PC calls, which appear in the queue with Error.
Windows up to date with SP1.
No new driver available from HP.
