What is a Certificate Authority?
What is the role of Certificate Service?
As per Microsoft: "This problem occurs because the System and Administrator accounts do not have sufficient permissions to, or the Administrators group does not have ownership of, the directory %SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys folder". See ME295162 for detailed information regarding this issue.
This behavior occurs because of changes to Certificate Services event logging that are introduced in Windows 2000 SP4. See ME822626 for more information about this problem.
Before Certificate Services starts, it enumerates all the keys and certificates that have been issued to the certification authority (CA), even if the keys and the certificates have expired. Certificate Services will not start if any one of these certificates has been removed from the local computer Personal certificate store. See ME842210 for details on this event.
The error is appearing because some fields in the Certificate registration were not filled in. The only fix that I found so far is to uninstall and then install the Certificate Services.
