How do I know what my certification server is doing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Excuse my noobness here, but I just realized my domain controller that I want to replace is also a certificate authority.  I noticed its issued some certificates and it has about 8 or 9 outstanding certifications that have not expired.  It shows the issued certificates are CA Exchange, Basic EFS and Domain Controller.  I've looked on Microsofts website and it explains what each template is used for (ie: domain controller template used for client and server authentication).  So my question is how do I know whats using those certificates or if they are even needed?  I have no clue this service was even running and I'd really like to just turn it off, but I'd like to find out if its going to cause any issues.  Is there any way I can find out what exactly my domain controllers are doing with these certificates?
