PKIView error

Hello
I am struggling to find the problem with our Certificate Authority system.  If I manually browse to the location of all of the bits in the picture below I can access them fine.  Permissions are set correction on the files.  If I browse using the URL everything works fine and the browser asks me where to save the relevant file.  Why would pkiview show "unable to download" ?
CA1 = server core 2008 r2
CA2 = Full server 2008 r2

Thanks

Always good to start from checking the event log. But from the immediate error msg, I am suspecting that the http URL may required a FQDN for your host instead of just "wwwca", e.g. wwwca.<ENTERPRISE-DOMAIN>.<ORG>.

But suggest you look at this link which may be alluding to your issue

....I manage to fix 3 url for the AIA Location 2, 3 and CDP location 2 issue. The problem was that the .CRL and .CRL files from the issuing CA were not copied to the web directory on the web server.

....for delta CRLs, you need to enable DoubleEscaping support on the IIS server.

I saw there is expiring indicator, you may also want to see this http://blogs.technet.com/b/pki/archive/2011/02/28/quick-check-on-adcs-health-using-enterprise-pki-tool-pkiview.aspx

Other info:

You can also try the "Certutil -verify -urlfetch <CA-certfile-exported>.cer” will check every CDP and AIA URL (including OCSP) and tell you how they are all doing at that specific instance in time since it goes to the URLs immediately.

The issue turned out to be DCOM permissions causing the issue.  The steps and guides above did help narrow what we were looking for though.

Thanks
