Kerberos Key Distribution Center Hung On Starting - and a certificate error
Posted on 2009-03-31
I'm running main and backup DCs for our domain - both boxes running 2k3 Standard w/ SP 2. When I reboot these boxes, I get long pauses during reboot and the event 7022 message that 'The Kerberos Key Distribution Center hung on starting.'. Kerberos services are running successfully on both boxes, and can be stopped and started without an issue. When I run certutil -dcinfo verify, the error I see is the following:
Element.dwErrorStatus = CERT_TRUST_IS_NOT_VALID_FOR_USAGE (0x10)
with the ending message being:
The certificate is not valid for the requested usage. 0x800b0110 (-2146762480)
I've gotten fresh certificates from my local CA (which is one of the boxes in question) and all seems normal when viewing them with the Certificates snap-in, but I'm really at a loss for an appropriate next step. The CERTSVC_DCOM_ACCESS group has the appropriate membership and I'm a bit puzzled.
Any info or words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
