Hi,

I have a server which i'm getting the following error trying to open the certificate manager(certmgr.msc)

I simply went > start > run > certmgr.msc"
"The certificate stores could not be enumerated.  The system cannot find the file specified."


This server does not run certificate services - Just IIS for website hosting - including SSL.

Can anyone shed light on the cause of this error?

Cheers!
Maverick

Hi
 
I did another google search after posting & found the cause - user error.

If you create the console (not snap-in) and then add the cert manager - it works.

My error was caused by the other servers having a Console the same name as the snap-in (certmgr.msc) but in a different location.

Unless anyone has anything to add to this - i'll ask the community editor to zero point this question.

Thanks anyway
Maverick
