  • During the setup of PSPKI you can choose several modules. Make sure that you have installed the Server module as Get-CertificationAuthority is part of the server component of PSPKI.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your question.

    1. Try to run powershell as a administrator.

    2. check your system version:

    This cmdlet support:

    Windows Server 2003 all editions
    Windows Server 2008 all editions
    Windows Server 2008 R2 all editions
    Windows Server 2012 all editions
    Windows Server 2012 R2 all editions
    Windows Server 2016 all editions

    3.This command is not available in non-domain environments. This command requires installed Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT).

    4. 

    Get-CertificationAuthority

    Try to returns all Enterprise Certification Authorities objects in current forest. check your Certification Authorities object with your CAname. 

    Best Regards,

    Lee


    Just do it.
