Certificate Authority 2003 -32 bit

Hi All,

I have a network of 200 user's  with mostly Server 2008 R2, but the Certificate Authority is still on Server 2003  32 bit Standard Edition. I want to use the newer Server 2012 R2 Certificate Services, but I'm not sure if I should upgrade/migrate my existing CA to a new server, or just uninstall Certificate Services and start over with a fresh new CA on Server 2012

Can someone please assist me with this?

Thanks
J

depends on how much you have pushed out from that CA?

it will make it cleaner to upgrade/migrate from an AD perspective

Should have been clearer

when i say pushed out depends on how many certificates have been issues from it i.e. for websites etc as they will break when you turn it of as it won't be able to revocation checks etc

I was doing google search again and found out that some say's that it's possible to migrate 2003 32bit CA to 2008 R2 64-bit and some say not.

Can you please tell me if it's possible at or not........

Thanks

Yes that's possible. In the first technet  link if you scroll down to supported operating systems it lists 2003 x86 and x64
