CertSrv Missing

CertSrv IIS Directory Missing

Just a quick - ran into an issue on a site today where a Certificate Authority had been configured, but there was no CertSrv directory - so you couldn't browse to https://server.domain.com/certsrv to issue certs.

Anyways, there's a simple way to fix. Start an elevated command prompt and use this command:

Certutil -vroot

That'll create your directories & site for you. Not really sure why it didn't get created - at a guess they didn't have IIS installed when they configured the authority? When I have come across this before it's usually because people have added web services after creating the CA, and have not finished the post-install config in the Server Manager.

Hey ho.
