Adding a new trusted root CA in domain doesn't work? RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I'm back in the office today, and I wanted to verify that the problems I was having with both exchange and some of our own apps wasn't caused by being off the corporate network, but it seems pretty clear now that I can't form encrypted connections that use our domain CA (given that wifi is failing as well).  I have the CA certificate installed in the local machine trusted root CA folder (same as on all the other machines that I have), but nothing that depends on it seems to work.  The cert does also show up in the current user hive as well.  Is there a limitation where you can't install new root CAs in this build, or where they aren't picked up somehow?  Again, not doing anything that didn't work in 7.

  • Can you validate the time setting of your computer? We saw an issue where the time was off by a few years that caused crypto operations to fail.

  • Nope, date/time are correct.

  • So, any ideas on this?  I've tried removing/adding the cert a few times, but it still appears to be failing.  Has anyone else been able to add a custom CA to Win8?  One of the apps that I want to try porting to metro relies pretty heavily on TLS, as do the desktop apps that I want to validate, so these crypto operations failing is kind of a breaking change for us.
