Do you see the certserv virtual directory in IIS? and also make sure that you have installed the AD webservices.

the Virtual Directory is in the IIS , the Physical path exists c:\windows\system32\Certsrv\en-us
when you run the test under Basic settings it fails on Autherization can not verify path (path as above)

if you test using browes this is the result

I think your problem is dns.  If you go to command prompt and do no lookup localhost what does it return?
Alan DuckTechnical DirectorAuthor Commented:
a ns lookup fails

looking in the IIS I have noticed the default web Site has a ? when I check it the manage web site it does appear to be started , when I click start an error comes up saying :-
Default web site cannot be started another web site is using the same port

it has a SBS site running that does use both port 80 and 443 has well

is this possible the problem.

Cris HannaSr IT Support EngineerCommented:
The SBS site is correct.  It might be helpful to understand exactly what it is that you are trying to accomplish with the cert server and then we can provide better solutions.  SBS has some unique configurations
Alan DuckTechnical DirectorAuthor Commented:
we have updated the pc's and office software so now the email system wants to use Certificates
we have now created some new certificate and we were trying to self sign them using the CA on the server this is when we found the Certsvr would not run
AmitIT ArchitectCommented:
Can you check the services related to certificates are running.
Cris HannaSr IT Support EngineerCommented:
So, to create Self Signed certificates in an AD where you have SBS running, you are to use the Wizard in the SBS console.   Are you running SBS 2008 or 2011??
Alan DuckTechnical DirectorAuthor Commented:
SBS2008 in this case
Cris HannaSr IT Support EngineerCommented:
This blog article from the Microsoft SBS team will explain how to create a new self signed cert using the wizard in the SBS Console and then how to distribute the cert for external users

Alan DuckTechnical DirectorAuthor Commented:
I have read this article only talks on how to distribute the certificate, , I got the Certificate created just need to certify them using CA
Cris HannaSr IT Support EngineerCommented:
You might have skipped over the part that says...."create a new self-signed SSL certificate through the Internet Address Management Wizard (IAMW)"   The Internet Address Management Wizard (IAMW) is found on the Getting Started page of the SBS 2008 Console
