    I have a certifictae server that WAS working perfectly. The only changes i'm
    aware of in the intervening period are

    1) Manually republishing of root server's CRL to the location specified in
    the CDP extension

    2) Installation of MOM advanced client

    The web interface reports "An unexpected error has occurred: The
    certification authority has not been started."

    This is incorrect, both "Certificate Services" and "Cryptographic Services"
    are started.

    The event log shows 2 errors

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: CertSvc
    Event Category: None

    Description:
    Certificate Services could not use the provider specified in the registry
    for encryption keys. Keyset does not exist 0x80090016 (-2146893802)

    The server has been rebooted. I've looked through KB & google and can't see
    anything that directly relates. Bit flummoxed really.

    There's one DCOM error in the system log, but I've traced that back to SMS

    Hope you can help
