When asking for client authentication, this server sends a list of trusted certificate authorities to the client. The client uses this list to choose a client certificate that is trusted by the server. Currently, this server trusts so many certificate authorities that the list has grown too long. This list has thus been truncated. The administrator of this machine should review the certificate authorities trusted for client authentication and remove those that do not really need to be trusted.

Note In Windows Server 2003, the issuer list cannot be greater than 0x3000. When you update root certificates, the list of trusted CAs increases significantly in size and may cause the list to grow too long. The list then gets truncated and may cause problems with authorization. See ME931125 for details.
