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

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

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.
