Hello, I am having an issue with my in house CA server. I was attempting to allow HTTPS authentication for me CA website under IIS. I went to default website under Directory Security tab. For Authentication and Access Control I changed it from the default anonymous IUSR_CASRV account to integrated windows authentication. When I pressed apply/ok it applied that to all the sub directories, and now when access my site and select request certificate it says that there are no templates found. I went back and removed the integrated windows authentication, but I'm still having the same result. I've restarted my services and still have been unable to access my cert templates via the web interface. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

otherwise try deleting the site and rename the actual file folders and then run that again...

Just to clairify, I should delete my sites from the IIS (CertControl, CertEnroll, CertSrv) Default Web Site? Which file folders should I rename? I'm sorry, I don't have a lot of experience with IIS.

Three Reasons Why Backup is Strategic

Backup is strategic to your business because your data is strategic to your business. Without backup, your business will fail. This white paper explains why it is vital for you to design and immediately execute a backup strategy to protect 100 percent of your data.

Sorry, yes delete the certsrv listing in IIS.
Sorry, typed that a little weird there - rename files or move to a folder - the .asp files in %systemroot%\system32\certsrv

The certsrv folder also contains files for your CA, so careful not to overdo it.  Probably easiest to make a 'oldASPfiles' folder or something like that and move all the ASP files into there.

Then run commands as above.

Alternatively, you could use the CA MMC to backup CA and backup the private key and database (not incremental) and reinstall certificates services as well with the same results, then go back into CA MMC and choose to restore CA and point to the file you backed up.  Adviseable to do a full backup including system state before reinstalling cert services, just to be safe, in addition to backing up the CA from the MMC.

Removing the IIS sites and running the command worked! I have to copy the ASP files back to their original location because they didn't recreate, but once I did, I was able to see my templates in the webcert request form. Thank you.
