JSI Tip 6763. When you filter the view of certificates on Issued Common Name, in the Windows Server 2003 Certification Authority MMC snap-in, the expected certificates are NOT displayed?

When you create a certificate with the default Administrator template, the Issued Common Name field appears to contain Users Administrator, but the character between Users and Administrator is really a line-break that is rendered as a space. This can cause filtering on Users and on Administrator to also fail.

To workaround this behavior, use another field, like Requester Name.
