Certificate Services without AD

craigaddison used Ask the Experts™
Hello all,

I would like to know if I can use Certificate Services on Server 2003 without Active Directory installed.

I have a non domain Server 2003 box which i want to act as Radius for 802.1x.

When I have installed Certification Authority, I have no access Certificate Templates or Certificates.

If an enterprise CA is needed then it has to be AD integrated.

A stand alone root CA / subordinate CA is possible in workgroup.

If its  a non domain joined machine, you could try using openssl..


Perfect. Thanks
