  • If I am reading you correctly, you can go import the certificate directly on the server and put it in the proper store (probably Local Computer).  I am assumming you want the certificate back on the server without the GPO pushing it.

  • Hi there,

    Thanks for the answer indeed what I want to do it it's taht gpo do a push on certificate and that it was working ok.

    Although what I couldn't understand is when I deleted the policy from gpo it deleted the  certificate from computer.

    Okward because if I delete the policy the certificate must be available on the machine.

    Thanks in advanced.
