    I have installed Cert Services in W2k Server. Everything works perfectly but
    one thing.
    For some reasons I need to use web wizard to generate certificate. There is
    no problem when I use simple wizard to get users cert.
    However when I go to advanced settings I have a problem. I choose all needed
    options and when I click Send I get an information that there was an error
    on this webpage: "semicolon mark was expected".
    I've looked everywhere (I think so :)) but I didn't found a solution.
    Have anyone had such problem?
    Maybe there is correted version of this website?
    I haven't found it on MS download page. :((

    I haven't had the "pleasure" of this error. Can you try to issue a
    certificate with minimum data entered (e.g. use all default except for first
    name last name, e-mail address...). Are you able to issue request?

    Can you post the actual error?

    If you are not too far into CA deployment, you might want to think about
    reinstallation of CA service? Before you do that, think if you want to
    create new CA certificates or use existing ones after reinstallation...

    I did what you suggested. It didn't help. When I open the website on a
    workstation I get an error everytime I want to generate advanced cert.
    I really don't know what is going on. :((
    I have one more thing. Those certs are valid only for one year. I need to
    generate cert for 2 years or at least for 18 months. Is there possibility to
    do that?
    I couldn't find any info on the Internet. Also my search in Windows itself
    wasn't succesfull.

    What exactly did you do? What is the error that you get? What if you try to
    issue certificate on CA server itself?

    How is your CA setup? As Enterprise CA or Standalone CA? For how long is
    root certificate valid?
