How to know if a CA is Enterprise or Standalone

Hi there!

I´m going to migrate a CA from windows 2003 (x86) to 2008 R2 and to know if the CA is Standalone or Enterprise I need to do one of the following:

  • typing the command: certutil -getreg ca\catype
  • Open CertSrv.msc console and locate Certificate Templates node. This node exist on Enterprise CAs only.
  • In Site and Services, Select Show Service node in the view pane. Go to Services, Public Key Services, Enrollment Services. If you view there the CA name like an object your CA is an Enterprise CA, if not is a StandAlone.
