to find remotely whether CA service is on (start) or off (stopped) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have installed Active Directory Certifiacte Services (CA server) on Window Server 2012 R2.

    Now I have a Client computer, where CA server and client computer are not in the same domain. The client computer can be windows, Linux or VxWorks  platform.

    If I am stopping the CA service (tools -> Certificate Authority -> right click CA -> Stop), then from client computer how can I find whether CA service is start or stopped (online or offline) (alive or unavailable).

    Client computer (which is not in the same domain as CA server) wants to know whether CA server is alive or unavailable (online or offline) (ADCS is start or stoppped).

    Actually I need to write a C program where I need to find whether CA service status.
