I love everything about this exam except for certificates. The only time I ever work with certificates is Exchange OWA. I never realized how much you can do with them. Gave me a few ideas for work actually. Anyway, back to studying. icon_study.gificon_cool.gif

    If you mean x509 certificates - that's a great technology solution which I sometimes wish more IT folks understand better.

    I used to dislike PKI but after digging around and getting used to things I really started to enjoy certificates. The only negative thing I have about them is the process of obtaining a certificate request. Although in Server 2008 this process is much easier but in 2003 its a pain in the neck sometimes.

    Yup, that's what I meant. It's just so cumbersome, time consuming, and prone to failure (either system or user) because so many variables are involved e.g. server role, group policy, iis, permissions, etc..
