This article covers how to quickly and easily locate a Microsoft Certificate Authority in your Active Directory Domain.
Using the Active Directory Users & Computers MMC, search for the ‘Cert Publishers’ group.
Double click ‘Cert Publishers’ in the search results, and you’ve got your answer.
From a command prompt, run the following command:
certutil -config - -ping
And again, you’ve got your answer.
