Thank you for your reply.  We tried to run it and get these results from the commad  essentutl.exe /g

Error:  Access to source database '<domain-hostname>-CA' failed with jet error -181.
Operation terminated with error -1811 (JET_errFileNotFound, File not found) after 0.0 seconds.



This servers was recentely converted from a physical server to a Virtual HyperV server.
Thank you

please try
essentutl.exe /r <Database File Name>
and see if it works

If issue still persists, may be due to P2V, you need to restore CA again from backup
Note that backup must be done previously in order to restore it
