CA Registration in Active Directory

Monika-D asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi - Can anyone help please?

We are migrating our Source Active Directory to our Target Group AD using the Quest Tools. Our exchange 2007 remains in the source Domain.

When the users logon to the target domain with their new account, they received a security alert which says “The security certificate was issued by a company you have not chosen to trust”.

When I select view certificate and point it to the source server hosting the ROOT CA, it works and the security alert disappear.  The problem is I have 10,000 users to migrate on this project.

Is there a way I can register our Source Active Directory Root CA in our target Active Directory to perform a certificate-based authentication of users and computers to get rid of this security alert error message?

Many Thanks
