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

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
