I just now installed a CA (Certification Authority) on my Windows 2003 test machine. After the install, in which I did not make any changes to the default, I went to http://127.0.0.1/certsrv
. Then I logged in as Administrator, clicked on "Request a certificate", then "User Certificate". In the next page, there is a drop-down menu titled "Key Strength", but the list of options is entirely blank. When I click the "Submit >" button, I receive the following error:
Your request failed. An error occurred while the server was processing your request.
Contact your administrator for further assistance.
newreq NN - New Request (keygen)
The data is invalid. 0x8007000d (WIN32: 13)
COM Error Info:
CCertRequest::Submit The data is invalid. 0x8007000d (WIN32: 13)
The operation completed successfully. 0x0 (WIN32: 0)
The certificate request contained bad data. If you are submitting a saved request, make sure that the request contains no garbage data outside the BEGIN and END tags, and that the file containing the saved request is not corrupted.
I'm fairly certain the "Key Strength" issue is the problem. Any ideas on how to remedy this issue?
