Cannot find Virtual Directory /Certsrv after installing Windows 2008 Stand alone CA

I am studying Exchange Server 2010, I created a certificate with all alternative subject name I need after I installed a Windows 2008 Stand Alone CA Authority. everything looks perfect except one thing: I cannot find a virtual directory called "Certsrv" in IIS7.

In Windows 2003, I used to use this virtual directory https://mycertificateserver/certsrv to download certificate chain file, and then import the file into all workstation's "Trusted Root Certificate store".

without that virtual directory, I don't know how to do it. Can any one help me out on this?

Thanks

you need to install the web component of the CA

you can do it using
servermanagercmd -i ADCS-Web-Enrollment

it seems something is wrong with the server, if you have not used the CA yes i propose to

Remove the CA
Remove IIS
Install IIS
Install CA + web component

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
