Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

C:\PS>Install-AdcsEnrollmentWebService -ApplicationPoolIdentity -CAConfig CA1.contoso.com\contoso-CA1-CA -SSLCertThumbprint <thumbprint> -AuthenticationType Certificate

Description


This command installs the Certificate Enrollment Web Service to use the certification authority with a computer name of CA1.contoso.com and a CA common name contoso-CA1-CA. The identity of the Certificate Enrollment Web Service is specified as the default application pool identity. The placeholder <thumbprint> should be replaced with the actual thumbprint of the certificate associated with the service. The authentication type is certificate based.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

C:\PS>Install-AdcsEnrollmentWebService -CAConfig APP1.corp.contoso.com\corp-APP1-CA -SSLCertThumbprint <thumbprint> -ServiceAccountName Corp\CEPAcct1 -ServiceAccountPassword (read-host "Set user password" -assecurestring)

Description


This command installs the Certificate Enrollment Web Service to use the certification authority with a computer name of APP1.corp.contoso.com and a CA common name corp-APP1-CA.

Notes

  • Ensure you run Windows PowerShell as an administrator. You can use the -force switch to bypass the prompt for confirmation. To see parameters, run the following command: install-AdcsEnrollmentWebService cmdlet -?
  • You can get the CA configuration, which is the computer name and CA name by running certutil without any parameters. You can see the SSL certificate thumbprints assigned to the local computer by running the following commands: cd cert:\LocalMachine\My dir | format-list
