I've inherited a very messy and un-maintained network.
I'm receiving the following error every 8 hours in the Application Log of my Domain Controller:
Automatic certificate enrollment for local system failed to enroll for one Domain Controller certificate (0x80070005). Access is denied.
I have googled several articles and most, if not all, deal with Certificate Authority server. However, I do not have Certificate Authority server installed.
The server is running Windows 2003 SP2 and it is missing only recent Windows Updates. It is the only Domain Controller. (I forcibly removed an old DC a few weeks ago which was no longer connected to the network. A dcpromo may have been run, but it certainly wasn't complete.)
I can find no other related error messages in any other Event Log. The Event Logs are quite clean, with exception to this error message.
Assistance is greatly appreciated.
