Get-IISCentralCertProvider

Last Updated: 3/30/2017

SYNOPSIS

Gets information about the IIS central certificate store.

SYNTAX

Get-IISCentralCertProvider [-CertStoreLocation] [-UserName] [-PrivateKeyPassword] [-Enabled]
 [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-IISCentralCertProvider cmdlet returns information about the IIS central certificate store. The central certificate store allows you to store all your IIS certificates in a centralized location (such as a file share); IIS servers then retrieve certificate from this centralized location. That means that you only have to install certificates in one location; there is no need to install the same certificate on each and every IIS server.

Called without any parameters, Get-IISCentralCertProvider returns information for all the certificate store property values. Alternatively, you can include one or more optional parameters in order to limit the returned data only to the specified properties. For example, this command limits the returned data to the Enabled property:

Get-IISCentralCertProvider -Enabled

EXAMPLES

Example 1

PS C:\> Get-IISCentralCertProvider

This command returns information about the IIS central certificate store. Because no parameters are used when running this command Get-IISCentralCertProvider returns information for all the certificate store properties.

Example 2

PS C:\> Get-IISCentralCertProvider -CertStoreLocation -UserName

This command returns information for two properties of the IIS central certificate store: the store location (CertStoreLocation) and the name of the user account used for accessing the store (UserName). Values for other properties (such as the private key password) are not returned. To return all the property values leave off all parameter when calling Get-IISCentralCertProvider.
