We have been running our Windows CA server for a few years now. Today, I tried accessing the CA console on the Win2003 server and received "Access Denied. 0x80070005 (Win32:5)) error msg.
Whenever I clicked on the "Revoked Certificates", "Issued Certificates", "Pending Requests" and "Failed Requests", I get this error msg. However, when I clicked on "Certificate Templates", it's fine.
I noticed I get a lot of these errors in my Event Log. Wonder if this has anything to do with it?
