I am getting event ID 13 followed by 6, source - CertificateServicesClient-AutoEnrollment on all my 2008 DC's.

Certificate enrollment for Local system failed to enroll for a DomainController certificate with request ID N/A from SERVERTEST.ABC.LOCAL\SERVERTEST_SERVER-CA (The RPC server is unavailable. 0x800706ba (WIN32: 1722)).

The computer SERVERTEST does not exist anymore, can I stop these messages somehow.

I have looked at eventid.net for this event but I can't understand out of all the options what I should do in this case where I simply want to remove all entries for this old server from my domain controllers.

It looks to be there is problem in the firewall, have you made any changes on firewall as RPC error or port & firewall related.

Check below link.

don't you think it is an error that it can't find the non-existent server? the error really goes back to since I installed 2008.
I will turn off firewall for a bit and see if events still log.

Did you do any CA migration from 2003 to 2008, something like that?

I don't think I have any CA servers, I don't think I even know what one is.

SERVERTEST was a domain controller?
If yes, was it demoted (dcpromo) before it was turned off?

On a domain controller, open a command prompt and run

dcdiag /v /f:dcdiag.log

May take a while to finish. Then check dcdiag.log. If you want to post it here, remove sensitive data.

Ok, check if you find old CA objects:

Scroll down to "Remove all Certification Services objects from Active Directory" and check if you see some or all of the objects mentioned.

I found the entry for SERVERTEST running certutil on a DC.

The MS article is for 2003 and gets lost on step 2, is there a 2008r2 equivalent.

Thanks making progress.....
