I have a problem with a Exchange 2010 Server on W2K8R2.

When I run the "New-ExchangeCertificate" Order, then then cursor goes to the next line and taht was all.

There are no errors and no other messages shown! I let it run for more then 4 hours(!), but no messages was shown. Also in the event logs was nothing logged.

When I use the Exchange Console to create a request, the assitent shows was also running for more then two ours and no result and no erros was shown.

Have Anyone an idea?

Hi Rancy,

I use this command for many times with the EX2010, in the last few days i have created seven certificates on other servers.

I have also test to get a better result with EMC console.

The assitent of console runs for a ever, until i close the window. But there comes no result an d no error!

Yes I Services are running!

The Exchange works without any problems incl. OWA.

I will check the command with a second admin account, but I can answer tomorrow, because I havn't access to the system today!

Thank you!

Hi Rnacy,

your hint, to use another admin Account was verry good!

When I logged in as anotehr admin user, I was able to vreate the cert. req. without any problems!

The Server will be replaced in the next two month, so I don't need to know what are the reasons for the malfuntion with the other login!

Thank you!

Could be possible Account or Profile corruption on the machine for the account
