JSI Tip 6903. Your Windows 2000 SP4 server event log records 'Certificate Services did not start', but it did start, and runs normally?

Your Application event log contains:

             A certificate chain processed correctly, but terminated in a root certificate
             which is not trusted by the trust provider. 0x800b0109 (-2146762487).

Starting with SP4, events are logged during the certification authority (CA) certificate chain-verification process when an invalid certificate is detected. This message DOES NOT indicate a problem with the current certificate.

Your only workaround is to ignore the Certificate Services did not start portion of the event description for events that are logged during the CA certificate chain-verification process.
