    Cert Authority wont install

    Locked

    by dumphrey ·

    When attempting to install Certification Authority on our DC, I receive an error saying, “An error occured while generating key for . Either the CSP configuration is not complete or the key length is not supported. Plese make sure the CSP is installed correctly or select another CSP.”
    Okay, how do I check the CSP install, and or configuration?

      Check if you have the following key in the registry on the server you are trying to install the CA on.
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Defaults\Provider
      Types\Type 001.

      If the key exists, back up, delete it and restart. Then try running the install again.

      Editing registry at own risk etc etc etc 🙂

      Looked in registry. Crytography ends there..there are sub-hives for templates and autoenrollment, but not for default provider.

      The article would help more if I could actually install CA services. I keep getting the error about no CSP. I also keep getting DCOM error 10005 in event viewer, but I dont think they are realated.
