I have two win 2012 R2 servers in a workgroup both running hyper-v. I am trying to create a self-signed certificate to enable replication. I have downloaded Makecert.exe (the win 8.1 version) and I am using the following command.
makecert -pe -n “CN=FirstRootCA” -ss root -sr LocalMachine -sky signature -r “FirstRootCA.cer”
I am receiving the following error:
Error: CryptCertStrToNameW failed => 0x80092023 (-2146885597)
I have never been very good with certificates – so should I run the command exactly as it is written or should I substitute server name / workgroup (or something) for FirstRootCA and LocalMachine?
Also the next line to execute asks for FQDN1 – both serves are members of a workgroup – so what should be there?
The ADC is a VM and all of the VM’s are members of a domain (total of 8 VM’s). I am following instructions as specified in the following post;
makecert -pe -n “CN=[FQDN1]” -ss my -sr LocalMachine -sky exchange -eku 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1,184.108.40.206.
220.127.116.11.2 -in “FirstRootCA” -is root -ir LocalMachine -sp “Microsoft RSA SChannel Cryptographic Provider” -sy 12 FirstServer.cer
Copy SecondRootCA.cer from Second Hyper-V
certutil -addstore -f Root “SecondRootCA.cer”
reg add “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\W
lication” /v DisableCertRevocationCheck
/d 1 /t REG_DWORD /f
