I'm trying to install exchange server 2013. Everytime I get an error whilst it tries to install the Mailbox Role.
The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
Install-ExchangeCertificate -WebSiteName "Exchange Back End" -services "IIS, POP, IMAP" -DomainController $RoleDomainController -InstallInTrustedRootCAIfSelfSigned $true
if ($RoleIsDatacenter -ne $true -And $RoleIsPartnerHosted -ne $true)
Install-AuthCertificate -DomainController $RoleDomainController
" was run: "Could not grant Network Service access to the certificate with thumbprint F14E751BD8D7252CD084F144753E4E9BE8CD571B because a cryptographic exception was thrown.".
That's the error the setup has provided me. A google search hasn't been fruitfull so I turned to you guys for some help. From the error I can understand that the Network Service account ouldn't be granted the access it needed to complete it's task.
In the meantime I'll try and grant the Network Service account the access it needs but so far I wasn't all that successfull. Due to the fact that I couldn't find any certificate with the described thumbprint.
Some information about the server:
- Windows Server 2012 Standard
- No DC, only SQL Server runs on it.
- Quad-core, 8 gb of ram
