We have a Microsoft Team Foundation Server (Single Server Installation, i.e. Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Microsoft Windows SharePonint Services 3.0) installed on a Windows Server 2008 machine. The TFS works fine, but there are error events logged frequently:

Log Name: Application


Event ID: 1005

Level: Error

Description: Certificate Services Client: Credential Roaming failed to write to the Active Directory. Error code 5 (Access is denied.)

The problem is clear (the error message is quite precise) but I don't have a clue how to fix it! Where has the access to be granted? What permissions have to be set?
