"No suitable default server credential exists on this system. This will prevent server applications that expect to make use of the system default credentials from accepting SSL connections. An example of such an application is the directory server. Applications that manage their own credentials, such as the internet information server, are not affected by this."

Checked here: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=261196

But I am running Windows 2003, not 2000. Should this be a concern? How can I check if I am running a CA?

RE: Event ID: 36872

Don't worry about it this is logged as standard on 2k/2k3 when the server can't use a secure connection, if you aren't running a CA then you will see this logged but it's nothing to be concerned about.

RE: Event ID: 36872

So how I could check to see if I am running a CA? Also, why would the server randomly try to use a secure connection?


RE: Event ID: 36872

Certificate Authority Server. Admin tools...Certificate Authority.

RE: Event ID: 36872

Tried to click it, stated that it is not an "Installed Service"

Guess that sums up the issue of am I running a CA.

Thanks Everyone
