IIS7, SSL and renewal woes

Tue, 22 Sep 2009 03:01:00 +0000

As this is getting a FAQ hitting my desk about once a month now, I would like to cover the Issue, give you a solution and some background data to explain what's happening. The question at hand is: I want to renew a SSL Server certificate for my IIS7 server and use the "renew..." option...

How to overcome error 0x80070490 when installing updates in Windows Vista/Server 2008

Mon, 29 Sep 2008 08:45:00 +0000

Disclaimer: Please note that getting this error is a serious hint towards an unstable system (in my case it was caused by a faulty hard drive). While the solution steps worked fine on my system, please create and test a backup of your system before trying the below. You can easily get to the point...

Creating "Wildcard" Certificate Requests for IIS using the Windows Vista/Server 2008 Certificates MMC plugin

Wed, 24 Sep 2008 10:00:00 +0000

You can use this to generate complex (as well as simple) certificate requests that satisfy pretty nice scenarios. For example, you can add the subject alternative names to the request that match all the web site names your certificate shouild  be used with. This allows you to create a "wildcard" certificate for example to use...

Windows Vista CPC shows volumes/drives as "system" unexpectedly

Wed, 30 Apr 2008 02:35:00 +0000

This one was pretty interesting. Especially the fact that there is little documentation (at the time of this writing) about the selection criteria the Complete PC Backup (CPC) uses to determine what is needed for a system recovery. On my system I expected only "C" to show but CPC did also mark "D" as system...

How to recover from iisadmin startup "Error 0x80090016 – NTE_BAD_KEYSET"

Tue, 15 Apr 2008 07:47:00 +0000

Here is the short version:You need at least the 3.x package of JailBreak and a working IIS Server. The .Net Framework 2.0 (or later) must also be installed on both to give you the aspnet_regiis.exe tool. On the "broken" server backup the data to enable rollback:From %windir%\system32\}inetsrv save the metabase.xml and the history and metaback folders execute...

Strong name signing in Visual Studio 2005 requires KeySpec=2 (AT_SIGNATURE)

Tue, 08 Jan 2008 02:54:00 +0000

I had the pleasure to troubleshoot this interesing issue and feel this information might be helpful for everyone dealing with code signing. You might hit this when trying to use the same keyset for strongname signing as well as for manifest and/or Authenticode signing. As noted in this article Visual Studio 2005 cannot handle PKCS#12 files that...

Limit the List of Certification Authorities allowed for Client Authentication

Tue, 19 Apr 2005 05:59:00 +0000

This seem to be something a lot of people are interested in.   Problem: On Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 (since the MS04-011 update) you can't use Certificate Trust Lists (CTL's) for this target.   Reason: Previoously in IIS5 using the CTL wizard you could  ADD certificates to the list of allowed Certification Authorities (CA's)...

Interesting problem with NavisionExample.pfx

Fri, 01 Apr 2005 12:18:00 +0000

Being back from a nice vacation in DomRep I just had an interesting issue. Upgrading to Windows 2000 SP4 from Windows 98 or Windows Me you might see problems when using the Navision Software with the German Elster Services (used to interface with the German tax institutions). Importing the NavisionExample.Pfx (supplied for Testing ONLY!) works...

Hi, this is my first entry to get started with blogging. In the future this should be filling with info mainly around IIS and PKI for now. ciao,  Andreas
