The following basic VBScript can be run by an end user or administrator to enumerate all the enterprise CAs in the forest, list the individual CAs, and display the role(s) held by the current user for each of the CA(s) as appropriate:

on error resume next 
dim certadm 
dim configobj 
dim config 
dim index 
dim roles(9) 
roles(0) = "CAADMIN" 
roles(1) = "OFFICER" 
roles(2) = "AUDITOR" 
roles(3) = "OPERATOR" 
roles(8) = "READ" 
roles(9) = "ENROLL" 
set certadm = CreateObject("CertificateAuthority.Admin") 
Call ExitOnError("Createobject CertificateAuthority.Admin") 
set configobj = CreateObject("CertificateAuthority.Config") 
Call ExitOnError("Createobject CertificateAuthority.Config") 
index = 0 
do while index <> -1 
    config = "" 
    config = configobj.GetField("config") 
    if(config <> "") then 
        wscript.echo "CA: ", config 
        PrintRoles(config) 
    end if 
    index = configobj.Next() 
    Call ExitOnError("ICertConfig::Next") 
loop 
sub PrintRoles(config) 
    value = certadm.GetMyRoles(config) 
    Call ExitOnError("GetMyRoles") 
    wscript.echo "Roles: 0x" & hex(value) 
    for count=0 to 9 
        if((count<4 or count>7) and value mod 2) then 
            wscript.echo "      ", roles(count) 
        end if 
        value = value \ 2 
    next 
End Sub 
Sub ExitOnError(failedCall) 
'    if err.number <> 0 then 
 '   wscript.echo "Error calling " + failedCall + " : " + err.value 
  '  end if 
End Sub
