CA failure, dead CA need new one


  • Hello,


    Don't now if this is the correct forum,


    We got a CA in a windows 2003 cluster (in one node), after virtualization, no one moved the CA to a new machine, the CA was issuing certificates to 3 or 4 IIS intranet aplications, now DC's keep logging DCOM errors not seeing the CA, and the web pages of the intranet ask for a certificate.

    The old certificate expires in about 2 months.

    We tried to create a new CA, but it doesn't let us to make a root CA, we think because the references to the old one are still there, I've read a lot about, but everything I see is migrate an existing CA, but what can we do if that CA doesn't exist so long.

    We tried to remove CA references on AD manually in a pre-production enviroment but it doesn't work, we tried te gave de same name to the new CA (with no hope obviusly) didn't work.

    Any ideas?
