Sample Script to Configure the EnterpriseSubCA

Updated: February 14, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 with SP1

The following script applies the most important configuration changes to a Windows Server 2003 CA for the EnterpriseSubCA computer.

ImportantImportant
Because percent (%) variables are handled differently in batch files and at a command prompt, you must use two percent signs (%%) if you run this sample script from a batch file, as described. If certutil is called from a command prompt and not from a batch file, only use one percent sign (%), not two (%%).

The following script applies the same configuration as the previous script, but it configures a Windows 2000 CA. Remember that the delta CRL configuration parameter is not supported in a Windows 2000 CA environment. To use the certutil –URL and certutil –vroot commands, you must run the version of the Certutil.exe utility that is included with the Windows Server 2003 operating system on the computer serving as the Windows 2000 CA.
