How to remove Currently Valid and some expired certificates from the Trusted Root Certification Authorities & Active Directory?
The CA was an exchange server (Server 2003) that was carved out of the environment and cannot be brought back. 1 certificates was not revoked and is valid until 2014 another certificate is expired.
The Domain controllers in the environment are showing
>> Event ID 6>>Automatic certificate enrollment for local system failed (0x800706ba) The RPC server is unavailable.
>> Event ID 13>> Certificate enrollment for Local system failed to enroll for a DomainController certificate with request ID N/A from mailsvr.mydomain.com\CommonName (The RPC server is unavailable. 0x800706ba (WIN32: 1722)).
I have been in ADSI Edit and AD Sites And Services and see the references to this Server and Certificates it has issues.
I have tried using certutil -dcinfo deletebad << however it skips the CA that it cannot reach.
***I want to remove the instances of the Server in AD along with its issued Certificates (that arent being referenced in Group Policy or being used for any real purpose in the current environment) without any issues to the Environment. How would I do this? ***
FYI I cannot mount the Certificate services console on the last 2003 server because it wont communicate with a missing server. (The Server Can't be brought back).
Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you.
