How to obtain all client certificates that join domain

Q: How to obtain all client certificates that join domain


Suppose all employee have certificates on their local machine (which join company domain).
This certificate is issued by Active Directory Certification Services
and all employee request and get this certificate automatically by group policy.

Right now I can export this certificate along with its private key in .pfx format by using <g class="gr_ gr_18 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" data-gr-id="18" id="18">mmc</g>
I'd like to know how can I get all user certificates along with their private key in .pfx format automatically without have the user go to export via <g class="gr_ gr_19 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace"
data-gr-id="19" id="19">mmc</g>.

I'm trying to implement <g class="gr_ gr_20 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del" data-gr-id="20" id="20">server-sided</g> digital signature service using SignServer-by Primekey which
is opensource software. I plan to put all .pfx I obtain on server HSM. This will <g class="gr_ gr_24 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" data-gr-id="24" id="24">provided</g> server-sided
digital signature services for all employee. (There will be some sort of authentication and authorization prior to signing)

<g class="gr_ gr_21 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Style multiReplace" data-gr-id="21" id="21">Note :</g> I'm aware that AD issued certificate will not be trusted by external parties.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)



I'm hoping this may be a quick fix, and I'd really appreciate your help with it!

At the organisation I work with, we have server 2003. About 12 computers are connected successfully to the domain. I connected them myself, simply by entering the domain name then username and password. (All XP clients)

However, at least half the computers in the organisation say "The Network Path was not found" when attempting to connect, using these same details. They are all on the same network and use WiFi or ethernet. Now I'm trying to understand why these won't connect.

The acid test was that someone brought in a random fresh new XP laptop (not configured for our organisation) and sitting right next to an existing computer, this one connected with the supplied details without a hitch. Both computers were running XP, service pack 3. The fresh new computer was brand new, the other organisation-computer probably at least three years old.

I can ping the domain from both computers without a problem. I have also replicated the proxy settings etc on both machines, to make the unconnecting machine identical with the connecting machine. I have also turned off firewalls on both client computers. Now I'm thinking there must be a component missing or some kind of block somewhere on the unconnecting client. I did try running SFC /SCANNOW which brought up no problem messages, and just disappeared after checking all Windows files were in tact. I cannot howe... Read more

A:Can't join domain, but a default XP client can.

I will send someone $10 if they can solve this! I know it's not much, but want to find out the answer. Our setup is very simple: some XP clients connect to Server 2003 domain fine, this included an outside XP laptop, with DNS and Proxy settings manually copied over from a working client. However some XP clients will not connect to the domain. They get as far as asking for a username and password to access the domain, then wait a while and report "The Network Path was not found". Obviously the path was found, otherwise why would the client try to verify the user details to connect? As far as I can see, all details on the clients are the same, so there is obviously something under the surface that is barring some computers from connecting. Especially annoying due to the fact that an outside XP laptop was brought in and connected with no problems. Your help much appreciated!

I've been trying to join a new Windows 7 Professional machine to a domain controller running Windows 2003 Server with no luck.  We currently have 4 Windows XP machines running on that domain without any issues, but when I try to add the Windows 7 computer,
here is what happens:

A computer account on the domain could not be found (confirmed it is already there)
I put in the computer name and domain again, and Administrator credentialsNow it tells me: "An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a DC in the domain being joined has failed."
I currently have DNS on the Windows 7 PC set to the Domain Controller and have IPv6 unchecked under Network Properties.  I can even ping the domain name (resolves to IP of the domain controller).  It looks like it can, indeed, find the domain from
the message in step 1, so am I missing something here?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Joined the computer to the domain with no issue. After reboot we could not log in with the domain user account. Tried other domain accounts too, even domain admin account. It say username or password is incorrect but that is not true.

Tried to unjoin and rejoin to the domain no luck.

Confirmed dns settings on the PC. Using wired connection. Not going through a VPN connection or anything like that.

I have an internal website requiring the user to provide a client certificate to allow access. On my client computer I have installed my user certificate and it shows up in the certificates list in IE8.

However, when I try to access the website I get an 403.7 error in the IIS log (client certificate required). IE doesn't even ask me for a certificate but just displays a blank site.

If I try browsing the website from the same client computer but using the Google Chrome browser, everything works just fine.

I have tried altering the various IE security settings and adding the site to Trusted sites etc. but haven't been able to solve the issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm aware that SHA-1 server certificates that chain to Root CA certificates within Microsoft's Trusted Programme are unsupported by Edge and IE11 on Windows 10, as of a couple of years ago.

We have an IIS web farm hosting our ASP.NET systems. The server uses a root certificate that, while was generated using SHA-1, is not part of the Trusted Programme and therefore has no problem when being used to connect to it securely; the problem is that some
of our applications require smartcard authentication, which as soon as they're prompted to enter the PIN, Edge/IE11 kills the connection.

It's as if Edge/IE11 won't allow the transmission of SHA-1 based certificates.

One strange caveat to this is that if I force IE11 to use only deprecated TLS versions (i.e. TLS 1.0) then it works, in that the smartcard certificate is transmitted and used to authenticate. If I force IE11 to use TLS 1.2 then it fails.

Using certutil I'm
able to determine that the smartcard client certificate was generated using SHA-1 and is also signed by the Root CA certificate used on the server.

IE11 works perfectly fine from Windows 7, so I assume the security policy only affects W10 versions.

Did I miss an announcement that this would also affect client certificates? The original announcement made it clear this would not be the case (taken from a Microsoft blog)

How will SHA-1 client authentication certificates be impacted?

We have client machines on IE11 that cannot connect to common websites using https (Facebook, Reddit etc.) because they do not have the Trusted Root Certs installed.
Until 2014 Microsoft released updates to Trusted Root Certificates via KB patches.
Since then they have advised customers to rely upon the process of Windows Update connecting to Microsoft servers to process the CTL (Certificate Trust Lists).
Question 1: Are clients sitting behind a proxy server able to download and process these lists? Our client machines clearly show that they are not able to resolve the update servers, so I assume not.
According to this article from 2014 - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/dn265983.aspx

"The list of trusted root certificates is available as a self-extracting IEXPRESS package in the Microsoft Download Center, the Windows catalog, or by using Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). IEXPRESS packages are released at the same time as the trusted
Question 2: Where can I find that/any of those packages?? They are not easy to find, evidently I am searching for the wrong thing via Google/Bing/Windows Update Catalog
If the latter does not/no longer exists, how do we obtain new/replacement Trusted Root Certs, and how should we distribute them around our estate?

A:Win 7 can not join domain

Hi hartanto,

I just succesfully joined 4 laptops with Windows 7 to my domain. 3 of my domain controllers are running Win2k3 R2, and one is Win2k8. I didn't encounter any issues. The only issue I found was with printer drivers not working with windows 7.

It sounds like you have an underlying network connectivity problem. Is your laptop on the very same LAN as the domain controller? If not, you won't be able to join a new computer remotely to a domain while it's not on the same LAN.

Hello. I have one computer running 2003 Server and another one running XP (SP2 if that matters). Well when I originally set them up, the client computer was only running XP SP1. When I first installed Server 2003, I was able to join my client computer with no problems. As time passed, the OS on my client got corrupted. So I reinstalled XP (fresh install, reformat and all....), upgraded to SP2 and when I try to rejoin, I keep getting an error message "The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domain name"; The specified server cannot perform the requested operation."

So I'm disabled my firewall on the client (Comodo), made sure I removed the original instance of the client from AD and even rebooted the server. All it does of the server side is shows the client name under the domain computer with a red "X" on it. I've tried removing the X and attempting to join again. No luck. Please help. Thanks in advance.

have a mind boggling situation here I have a public domain setup to be accessed from all around the world. the server is win 2000 advanced server with AD domain setup "sup.domain.com" with local ip address of & Static configuration. DNS is setup with forwarder to point to our ISP DNS. We have T1 connection with Cisco router & HP switch 80 port gig. The NAT settings were done to allow all ports for the process of DNS from public ip of sup.domain.com though the router which handles DHCP for all domains.

with that been said, some of the pcs can join the network when using the public dns ip, but some come back an error "the format of the specified network name is invlaid" (screenshot server_error). some join the domain just fine. However, i was looking at dns & seen "computername.olddomain as a DC" (screenshot server_error_dns)which i was not able to add to domain. that error disappered after restart.

Hello all...

I just installed build 7000 and I'm having issues connecting to my domain at work. I cannot setup my Outlook account either because my network exchange server is NT4 based.

I have tried setting up my account via Outlook and via the "Mail" portion of Control Panel to no avail...

Any workarounds that anyone can spare?

A:Cannot Join NT4 Domain

Did it work on the previous build you were using? I know that it's a huge pain to get a NT4 machine onto a 2k3+ domain. I've never tried using a newer machine to join a domain older than the client (except for XP clients to a 2k domain). Also, to get Vista to join a NT4 domain, you have to lower the security requirements. Another way around that I used in XP when it wouldn't play nice was to, instead of changing the PC's friendly name, I would go to the Network ID button and run thru the wizard. If it atleast finds the DC, then the wizard should work every time.

Quote from Joining NT Domain
"Under Local Policies > Security Options

Change the value of "Network Security: [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]LAN[/COLOR][/COLOR] Manager authentication level"
from "NTVLM2 responses only" to "LM and NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security
if negotiated"

Note that I last tried this with build 5384. Newer builds may need a
different fix.

A:Can't join domain

Are you logged onto the PC as the local Administrator account?

Do you have sufficient authority to add a computer to the domain. Are you apart of the domain admins group. When it asks you for the username and password you need a user that is apart of the domain admins group. Enter the username and password of a user that has enough right to create computer accounts in the domain (for example - a Domain Admin group member). If a computer account was already established in the domain then you can enter any username and password of any valid user (for example - your own domain username and password).

Its not that easy but let me tell you the basics -

Properties of my computer/Computer name/click change/ click workgroup and type in the workgroup name.

THis unjoins you from the domain the main things to think about are this -

1) your profile information will not be remembered so you have to run F.A.S.T in order to get all the information beforehand. 2) ALSO if this is a company PC pulling it off the domain can make it so when you get into work you won't have access. 3) As well you have to have administrator rights to pull it off the domain.

A:How to join a domain via VPN

Hi Crabrc,

Welcome to Seven Forums,

I'm sure this will depend on the permissions and configuration of the servers but in theory, if the user is connected to the VPN then you should have remote access to the machine (providing this enabled on their machine) you should then be able just add it to the domain as you would normally.

You may have to put the fully qualified domain name in but it should work, I haven't had any issues doing that.

You may need a host entry to resolve the domain name.

I am dealing with big problem on multiple workstations in our company. Many Windows 7 computers and one Windows XP computer have all Root CA certificates not trusted so I cannot import new certificate generate by Certification Authority in our Country.

I noticed this problem recently and after two days on google I couldn't find solution to this.

If I open mmc and select Certificates - > Computer -> Trusted Root Certification Authorities I see all certs on computer but after I check any they show this in General info about Cert:

This CA Root certificate is not trusted because it is not in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store.


This root certificate appears to be trusted by the remote computer. To ensure this root certificate is valid on the remote computer, verify this root certificate on that computer.

This goes for all certs (Microsoft, Thawte, Go Daddy, GeoTrust...) and even for our certificates generated by our internal CA.

We push only Critical and Security Updates from our wsus server. Affected computers have installed all updates.

We have firewall and don't allow full access to internet but I tried to give one computer with this issue full access to internet and reboot couple times but that didn't help.

PCs are Win 7 Ultimate, All are joined to the Domain
Domain Controller, DNS, DHCP Server (on same instance) is Server 2012 standard
The network topology is like this: Router as Internet Gateway>Switch>Wired to Server and PC's, SIP phones, and Wireless Access Point all on same subnet. DNS and DHCP have been offloaded to Server Roles and switched off on the router.
All of the PCs have network cards that have joined the domain network at least some of the time since I set them up.
Some of them have always picked up the domain network and continue to this day.
Some of them intermittently pick up the domain network and other times join whatever other unmanaged network is available.
Some of them have stopped picking up the domain network altogether and will, no matter how many times their NICs are restarted, always join a non-domain (unmanaged) network.
When the NICs are not joining the domain, they are unable to ping hostnames of any devices on the network but nslookup of the hostnames usually works. The DC, DNS, DHCP server's IP can be pinged without issue, ipv4 or ipv6.
I am recording DNS Client Errors (ID 1014) on all of the PCs during the intervals when their NICs are identifying which network to join.

-On the PCs that are catching the domain network I am only getting a single error about the root domain, eg the domain is ad.domain.com and I am only getting errors about how the configured DNS servers cannot resolve domain.com (nothing with fully qualified

Well, of course, needed to create a new domain (ok, not of course..but I did). In order to get my trust between the AD Domain and the NT Domain, I have WINS set up on the AD Domain Controller and have a push/pull going on with the NT WINS. Also had to create a LMHOSTS file.

Now, it seems that new computers that need to be set up in to the NT Domain cannot join the domain unless NetBUI is installed. From what I understand, this was never really the case prior.

What could I have done to have made this change to the network?

I am taking Networking at my local technical school, and my instructor has issued me a challenge. (not a test or anything.) He said that last semester, a student joined a WIN7 machine to a WIN NT 4.0 domain. So..I have researched it.....I discovered one post that discussed how it was possible on the win 7 beta version. However i do not have that version. Does anybody out there have any idea how one might do this? Can I use Samba? Are there any registry tricks I can try.. from what i can tell there are Trust issues between the two operating systems that are the real problem. Anybody?
Best Regards,

Welcome to TSF!

The DNS address of the client must be the Domain Controller, not your ISPs DNS settings.
And of course DNS must be installed and properly configured on the Server.

Can you ping the Server by it's IP address?
Can you ping the Server by it's Name? )Server1)
Can you ping the Server by it's Full DNS Name? (Server1.domain.com)
Can you ping the Domain name? (domain.com)

To check the current DNS settings, Click Start | Run (or press WinKey+R), type cmd, press Enter.
Type ipconfig /all and press Enter.
Check the DNS addresses listed, the first one MUST be the IP address of the DC for the domain.

An error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "HAMI.LOCAL".

The error was: "An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host."
(error code 0x00002746 WSAECONNRESET)

The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.KED.COM

I am running WinXP pro SP2, and don't have the option to join a domain. I think there is something wrong in the group policy, but I can't find the problem. For Internet I am on a T1 thanks to my University. I shouldn't have any internet as far as I know because I'm not on the domain. I also can't use (although I think this is not so bad) windows firewall. Everything is in grey and the setting is turned off. I have been having problems ever since I reformatted and did a clean install of Windows.

I have a domain controller that I've just set up. As far as I can tell everything is working ok, but I don't seem to be able to join my machine to the domain. When I try, I get the following error:

I have my DC is running DNS with a forward lookup for my router. In TCP/IP settings, should my DC/DNS server AND my client point to my DNS server (localhost in the case of the server) or to the router, or does it not matter?

Here are some details, any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Solved: DNS - Can't join PC to domain.

You PC is pulling its IP address and DNS server settings from your router. AFAIK you should have the pc setup to pull from the DC. But I haven't setup a Domain since 2000 server. I was a Netware guy for many years so I could be wrong.

I'm helping a Dental Office get their current workstations upgraded. All workstations are complete and ready to swap out the old hardware, except i am worried that when the users go to log back into the domain from the new pc's, they won't be able to.

The previous IT guy said they are local profiles, located on each individual PC and not on the server? I thought setting up a Domain was so people could log in from any computer on the network?
