Certificates Services error in event viewer

All replies

  • Hi,

    As per the event ID 13 description, error code "0x800706ba -  The RPC server is unavailable" is recorded for this and the troubleshooting steps are

    • Verify that the client can get a certificate using the Manual Enrollment via the MMC Certificate Wizard.
    • Check network connectivity to all of the available certification authorities listed in the Enrollment Services object listed in the Active Directory:CN=Enrollment Services,CN=Public Key Services,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=Domain,DC=com
    • Verify that the Certificate Services service is running on the certification authority.
    • Check for firewalls and proxy settings.
    • Use Portqry to verify that the necessary RPC ports are opened.

    The same info you can find in

  • using the certutil config command I found the CA server.

    this server was used for testing, and is already not in used.

    since the CA server is not in used, how do I stop the event logs from appearing again ?

    this is the server hostname that appear in the event viewer.
