Certificate Authority - Extending the Validity Period of a pre-installed CA
Posted on 2010-08-31
I am currently running Windows SBS 2008 (not that I can percieve its that much different from 2003) and the Certificate Authority is already installed on it with the default 5 year validity period.
I would like to extend the validity period for the ROOT CA as high as it will go, but because it is already installed I cannot appear to do this by the wizard, and the certreq utility isn't the most friendly of commands.
How can I extend the validity period of the ROOT CA, and also increase the exipiry periods of all of the certifcates it will issue?
