Migrating Enterprise CA


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm planning to migrate CA enterprise authority from Windows 2003 Enterprise to Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise, but I would like

to keep current server that holds CA services because this server is also our exchange server. CA server name is different to hostname and I would like to use that name for

newly created CA authority. Is it possible to have such migration? Please, could someone give me some guidance.

Microsoft documentes these things here:

AD Certificate Services Migration Guide

AD CS Migration: Migrating the Certificate Authority

How to move a certification authority to another server

Basically, you need to back up the current CA, remove the CA server from it's existing server after a successful backup, install the new 2008/R2 server, and restore the CA to this new host.
