Here is the error when I run dcdiag...

 A warning event occurred.  EventID: 0x00009016

            Time Generated: 04/22/2011   22:16:51

            Event String:

            No suitable default server credential exists on this system. This will prevent server applications that expect to make use of the system default credentials from accepting SSL connections. An example of such an application is the directory server. Applications that manage their own credentials, such as the internet information server, are not affected by this.

How do I fix this problem?

It's a credential problem similar to yours, and sometimes following the steps to remediate a similar problem sheds light on what you're working on.

There isn't much out there on this specific problem; perhaps there are specific entries in the system or application event logs that might help us get further?   Could be entries in there relating to the dcdiag, or more general event id's that can point us further,

I can put the results up there for dcdiag but those are the only failures. Since everything is working, I'm wondering if it's one of those microsoft errors that is nothing to worry about??

I read once that error/warnings in your system event log will cause dcdiag to throw an error.  might try clearing your event logs and then running dcdiag.

This event occurs when a server attempts to make an SSL connection but no server certificate is found. In a domain where no enterprise CA exists, this event is normal and can be safely ignored or you can install a CA in the domain.


I don't use a CA in my domain so I just ignore it. The problem I have is it shows up in my DCDiag report which is annoying.
