Moving Certificate Authority from old win 2003 to new win 2008 server
Posted on 2012-03-13
I have a simple question.
We have an old windows 2003 domain controller running that we need to get rid of.
One important service that is running is the certificate authority service that provides our clients with the certificate to access our network.
This server is old now and I want to move all services to a new windows 2008 server.
I found a couple of documentations on how to move the CA from a windows 2003 to 2008, but I also heard that I need to give my new server the same hostname as my old to make the CA restore work on the new 2008 server.
Is this correct, do I really need to name my new server as the old one to make the CA work?
