I know if does not contain many of the features of 2003 Server and Advanced Server, but I could not find on MS's site whether it can have a Certificate Authotiry for file encryption installed or not.

Thanks,

Good question.

The fact that this product supports Active Directory and GPOs - while not actually being able to make it a domain controller makes it more interesting.

My best answer on this would be, yes.  As long as AD is supported and the CA is on another DC in AD, then it should work as expected.

Netman66, please let me know if you found the results.  We would like the datacenter server to operate as the CA.

I'm terribly sorry for the delay - I had thought I replied to this already but it appears it didn't show up.

It can be done.  The code base is virtually identical and since it supports AD, then it will support the CA.  Now, that being said, I still have no documentation since none yet exists - this straight from MS.

Best advice, back up everything before you start and see if you can move it over or recreate it on the Storage Server build - this sure will be a new experience.  I don't know anyone who is trying this - so please share your results with us so we can learn too.
