certutil -backupDB error RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am getting an error doing a backup of the CA database using certutil -backupDB. The backup files are created but it fails verification.

    The error is: Backup content verification failed c:\temp

    certutil: -backupDB command failed: 0x800700005 (WIN32: 5)

    Certutil: Access id denied.

    I have used auditing to try and work out what the restriction is but I can not find anything. I guess it is a security right or ACL.


    The account is a member of users and backup operators, NOT local admin
