WindowsCA Certificate Revocation Checking

jbla9028 asked
Last Modified: 2018-02-22
I have deployed a WindowsCA. I have an offline Root CA and an Enterprise Suboridinate. We issue all the certificates from the subordinate. After checking some configuration, I noticed the url used for the CRLs is invalid and clients cannot communicate to check CRLs. I need to add a valid CRL location. My questions below

1. how will this effect existing certificates in the wild? I am OK knowing the existing certs out there will not be checked for revocation as long as new Certs are.

2. Do I need to re-key and distribute a new Subordinate certificate after I modify the Extensions (CDP/AIA)?

Thank you in advance.
