JSI Tip 8195. How can a Windows Server 2003 intermediate CA (Certification Authority) permit issuing policies for itself, or for subordinate CAs?

An intermediate CA does NOT permit issuing policies for itself, or for subordinate CAs.

If you wish to configure an intermediate CA to permit this behavior:

1. Open the %SystemRoot%\CApolicy.inf file in Notepad. If the file does not exist, create it to contain:

\[Version\]
Signature= "$Windows NT$"

2. After the \[Version\] section, add the following:

\[PolicyStatementExtension\]
Policies = AllIssuancePolicy
Critical = FALSE

\[AllIssuancePolicy\]
OID = 2.5.29.32.0

3. Save the %SystemRoot%\CApolicy.inf file.

4. Exit Notepad.

5. Open a CMD.EXE Window and type the following, pressing Enter after each line:

net stop certsvc
net start certsvc

NOTE: If you created a new %SystemRoot%\CApolicy.inf file, it would look like:

\[Version\]
Signature= "$Windows NT$"

\[PolicyStatementExtension\]
Policies = AllIssuancePolicy
Critical = FALSE

\[AllIssuancePolicy\]
OID = 2.5.29.32.0
