A lot of certs in the Published Certificates property sheet of AD Users

    Question

  • Hi!

    A while back I rolled out Certificate services for OCS / Lync internally.   I read a lot about the service before actually installing, it took a couple of tries, to get it working, too.  But, it works!

    I'm still challenged by issuing certs, but someday it will all click.

    Today, troubleshooting another issue, I looked at the Published Certificates tab under my AD account properties to find there was a bunch of certs in there.  Thinking this might be related to the problem I was having I saved each one to a file..  About an hour later I find I have saved off 94 certs. from my account.

    I go to look at other people's accounts and they have similar one's, although not  in the 90's ..    

    They all look to be the same cert to me.   A lot of them expire on 8/xx/2012..

    The certs are for Client Authentication, Secure email, Encrypting Filesystem. 

    Does anyone know what the heck I did?  Why this is happening?     Could this cause SingleSignon to fail?
