CertSrv enrollment page will not open

I am setting up a Certificate Authority server. I installed the components on the server, both the CA services and the Web enrollment piece. It creates the virtual dir in IIS, but I cannot browse to the page. I go into IIS and do a browse and it won't open it. I did a certutil -vroot and everything is fine according to that utility. Haven't found a lot of help on the web. Uninstalled and reinstalled with IIS shutoff. Any help is appreciated.

You need to install ASP.NET services for IIS - make sure this is the case.

Otherwise, if the site is started it should be accessible at http://servername/certsrv as it sounds like you are already aware.  Make sure the site is started and that permissions are valid.  Is this a dedicated server for the CA or does it share other functions?  Sometimes other programs can interfere like sharepoint.

I guess I'm not 1000% sure, but I think it's installed. In IIS under Web Service Extensions, ASP.NET v1.1.4... and v2.0.50... and v2.0... (32-bit) are all Allowed. This is a 64 bit box.

It is not a dedicated CA. There are several other applications running on the box using IIS.

I just installed it on a different box. Don't know if it was the 64 bit OS being the issue or what. If someone can close this, I would appreciate it.

Certificate services work just fine in 64 bit versions of windows.  If sharepoint was installed as well that can definately cause a conflict, the same goes for whatever else may be running on that box to support your other web environments, including some hardening scripts, etc. that you may have installed.  If this was also on a DC then there would be specific issues relating to that as well.   A dedicated box is always best for your CA as regular maintenance for other applications can have odd behaviors with your CA.

Glad everyting is up and going.
